The Oddest Couple
And yet somehow, it makes sense. Ever since I began watching Chinese television (the infamous CCTV), I have seen numerous ads talking about China's growing business relationship with Namibia. Half the advertisements on CCTV9 - the one CCTV channel with any English whatsoever - were for increasing travel to the developing and recently stabilized southwest African nation. I thought it was a strange relationship, China and Africa. But this morning, the proof was in the pudding, so to speak:,,3-2439228,00.html

Maybe I should break down and learn Swahili.

As if life isn't hard enough already.

Note: I am once again off the air, as the Chinese blog monitors have realized their momentary lapse in judgment and, after only a brief window of opportunity, have once more refused me and my Chinese fan-base access to my blog page. I suppose that's just the price of infamy.

THE WILD WILD EAST: Everything you never knew you didn't know about life on the other side.
In China, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important groups. The Chinese, who call this land "home," and the expats who migrate here. My name is Rachel. I am an expat. These are my stories.

A Brief Disclaimer:
This is a satirical site intended for the entertainment of an online audience. None of the features on this site are real (except in my own distorted view of reality), nor are they intended to harm the subjects mentioned. This site uses fictional names in all its stories, except in cases when public figures are being satirized or when I choose to use this site as a platform for someone's public humiliation (usually my own). Any other use of real names is accidental and coincidental (or purposeful, but with good reason).

Despite the trivial nature of my random daily (sometimes weekly) musings, I hope you enjoy your stay at my site. If there is anything you need, don't hesitate to ring up the concierge, because I just travel in style like that. Have a pleasant stay and I hope that you will come see us again soon!
