Help, My Friends are Moving to China!
Hi Meltingpot Readers,
This weekend we're playing host to our dear friends who will be moving to China from the United States, next week!! Mom is Kenyan, Dad is Jewish American, and they have two adorable Mixie kids. But they're moving next week. I can't stand it. Dad got a great job and mom said, 'why not?' I am so excited for them, but a little sad too because our relationship is now going to depend on Skype. But on the other hand, the Kinky Gazpacho family now has a reason to plan a trip to China. Oh, and to learn a little Chinese.
But in the meantime, my friend is kind of freaking out. This move has happened really fast! So, I'm asking you dear readers, does anyone know of any good blogs, and/or online resources for Americans moving to/living in China? I think she'd really like to follow other people's stories who have done this before. Especially Mixie and/or Meltingpot families.
So, all of you expats, especially those who really made a radical move, please share your blog addresses or let us know where you go online for inspiration, a virtual shoulder to cry on etc. In the meantime, I'm trying to get my friend to start her own blog so we can follow the family's progress.
