This is my last week here in Jiangsu and I'm kind of bummed because I really like it here.
This area is nice and peaceful, I like my students and I've made a few friends here at school.
Changsha isn't a bad place but I feel a lot happier here and I wish I could stay but I've got to go back and finish my contract.
At least I am halfway done with my contract now which means that around the end of 2008 or start of 2009 I can re-locate to another city for 6 - 12 months and maintain my nomadic lifestyle.
I think one of the things I'm going to miss the most about this place is a Japanese girl named Kahori who I befriended a week or two ago.
Her and I have been hanging out a lot recently to practice speaking Mandarin and I really enjoy her company.
She'll be here for one more semester and then she's going back to Japan for a month after which she'll go to England for a year to study English!
It's going to be a little hard for me to say 'good-bye' to this girl but at least I have her e-mail address so that we can keep in touch.
