I have travelled in about Half part of China. i have worked and lived in different cities like Chongqing, Tianjin, Beijing and now Qingdao.
I'm French and English teacher in China but my real job in France is something at the crossroad of pedagogy and politic. we call that "popular education" (search on wikipedia if you want know more about that). So, I'm not someone neutral but engaged about some values!
So, I have been disappointed about many Chinese (especially because many things turn around money, superficiality and materialism) and about China...I know quite well Chinese culture also.
I go on to think China is not a country you can live long years except if you live in the countryside....too much stress, noise, pollution, peoples and so much Chinese bad habit let you day after day become exhausted and angry!
In other side, some Chinese are really warm-hearted and great. Many places in China are also wonderful, peaceful and far away to the city!
