We're in the market for buying a pet dog, preferably a puppy to raise into old age.  Preferred breads are larger to mid-sized such as a Great Pyrenees or Japanese Akita (like from the movie Hatchi). …Continue 继续

One thing that has helped my family and I to adjust to living in China was attending a religious gathering.  However, it can be hard to know where to find others of the same religious persuasion.  I…Continue 继续

Hiking Zhongshan

Does Zhongshan have any hiking areas?  I see lots of beautiful mountains around Kaiyin and the reservoir and was hoping there are some type of trails on or near the ridges.  If not, maybe I can just establish my own. hehe.  I know mountain climbing in China is pretty different than in the US where I'm from, but I would like to hike some rather pristine areas with rock and dirt rather than asphalt and concrete if possible.See More

Looking for a Pet Dog

We're in the market for buying a pet dog, preferably a puppy to raise into old age.  Preferred breads are larger to mid-sized such as a Great Pyrenees or Japanese Akita (like from the movie Hatchi).  The idea is that the dog will be somewhat protective without being overly aggressive.  I've raised a Great Pyrenees in China before and he did great, except the shedding was a bit much, but his temperament was great. Not great to play fetch with, but when you needed a friend to stick up for you,…See More

My wife, Lulu, and I recently moved from the US with our son, Gideon, to Zhongshan.  I am working as an engineer designing ventilation fans in Minzhong Zhen.  We'd love to get know some other expats and expat families.  I lived and worked in Nanchang, Jiangxi for about 6.5 years from 2007-2014.  About the only time I see foreigners in Zhongshan is on the ferry to HongKong and most of them are simply visiting, not living here.  I have seen one at a McDonalds and one in passing at LiHe…
