Living in China

Two of my friends meet in this episode to talk about living in china. My friend Renee lived in China for over two years serving in the Peace Corps and my friend Jessica (when this episode was recording) was about to move to Shanghai. I took a brief two week trip to China a few years back. We discuss what an American can expect from this extraordinary culture that, at first glance, can seem backward to our own.
