by Ben Davidson
"I didnt quite fit into the foreign community but I was living a completely different life from my Chinese friends."
In Short: June 18-24,
Hollywood to co-produce, artist to pay

FYI: Too damn HOT!
The oppressive humidity of summer lasts only a few months, but they are usually a very long few months. Stop mopping the sweat off your brow and help develop Chinas power infrastructure by installing an air-conditioner.
Get that office communication going!
Ask Ayi: Ayi Lets Her Hair Down?
Doctor Doctor: Dont Let the Beijing Bug Bite
