Once firmly grounded back in Edmonton, Alberta, where I had a house with a garden, I am now a somewhat itinerant – or so it feels – man about Asia, currently working at a large international company in Guangzhou, China.
If you don’t know about Guangzhou, here’s a simple way to connect yourself with it. Pick up ten things in your house made in the last decade or so: from electronics to your frackin’ designer bag. I would say at least four of those things were made here, and if it’s a really big thing, say a fridge, then 40% of the parts for that thing were made here. That’s what they do in Guangzhou. They make things.
So now after teaching here I am editing, writing, taking pictures for the company mag, and generally enjoying things. It feels substantial, where my last jobs have been evanescent.
I pass the time watching movies, taking pictures, eating, playing and learning my cool blue guitar made guess where?, hanging out with friends (and probably at C:Union), learning more about this city, and dreaming of my next big trip (Paris in April)
