It must be obvious that China and its culture are of great interest to me, and I recently returned after living there for two years. I do speak pretty good Mandarin, but no one would say it is perfect. Still, every day I get a little bit better.
I'm an ordinary guy and yet I am not. I like pizza and football, and cable TV shows. I drink cheap beer with friends and hike on the weekends. But on the other hand, I paint every day. I hand carve traditional Chinese seals. I love making dinner and I will/have eaten almost anything (never had snake, though). I like to travel to third world countries, and this summer I am hoping for the Philippines and China again. But India has always been my dream destination.
A lot of people in Asia said I don't take life seriously enough. Maybe they are right. But just make me laugh and I'll be happy :p
