Georgi Grancharov, lives in China (2012-present)

I believe the most important change that happens is mentally - you really start enjoying your life much more. I rarely see someone complain, about anything.

Look at your timeline on Facebook, all those people arguing about politics, global warming, gay marriage or whatever - people here don’t discuss those topics. They, or should I say ‘We’ don’t care.

It’s so nice just to sit with a bunch of people and not get into deep discussions. Drink, eat, enjoy and work the next morning. There are no ‘weekends’ here as we know them in the West. People work constantly, but they also have fun constantly. It is not as monotone as in the West.

I don’t remember the last time I had dinner just by myself. Usually there are always some (Chinese) friends, somewhere, and we eat together. When the bill is due, everyone wants to pay it - not the other way around like in the West. Money is not the number one priority here - it’s building up a network (guanxi) of friends and acquaintances, so you can help each other out in various situations.

我相信,最重要的变化是精神上的—你真的开始享受生活。我很少看到有人抱怨这个那个的。

看看你在Facebook上的时间轴,都是对政治、全球变暖、同性恋婚姻或其他问题的争论—但这里的人对这些话题不感兴趣。他们,或者应该说‘我们’不在乎。

和一群人坐在一起寒暄真是太舒服了。第二天早上继续吃吃喝喝,享受生活,好好工作。正如我们在欧美地区了解到的,这里没有周的概念。人们不停地工作,但他们也总有乐趣。并不像欧美地区那样无聊单调。

我不记得上一次我一个人吃晚饭是什么时候了。我总能找到一些新用户注册送59元彩金 朋友一起吃饭。买单的时候,每个人都抢着付钱,不像欧美地区那样。金钱不是这里的头等大事——它能建立起朋友和熟人间的关系网,所以你能在各种情况下互相帮助。

I am not a teacher - I run a small design and advertising firm. After spending 6 years here, I cannot imagine moving back to Europe again. The things I would miss the most are the people - even just strangers, but they’ll treat you as family.

Many Westeners will never understand this, and that’s a good thing. In fact, we foreigners, who have ‘real jobs’ and really understand the Chinese lifestyle - we don’t want you here. Because the majority of foreigners just come here and they simply cannot adapt. Then they start complaining or even behaving publicly in a way that makes all foreigners look bad.

我不是老师——我经营着一家小型的设计和广告公司。在这里度过了6年之后,我无法想象搬回欧洲会是什么样子。我最不能忘怀的是人——就算只是陌生人,他们也会把你当作家人一般对待。

许多西方人永远不会明白这一点,这是件好事。事实上,我们这些拥有“真正的工作”并且真正了解新用户注册送59元彩金 的生活方式的外国人——我们不想让你们来这里。因为大多数外国人来这儿后,根本无法适应。然后就开始抱怨,甚至在公开场合做出让所有外国人蒙羞的事。

 

Pat Munday, Professor of Science & Technology Studies (1990-present)

My experience in China is based on living and teaching as a visiting professor at universities in three Chinese cities: Chongqing in “southwest” China, Yinchuan in “northwest” China, and Guangzhou on the southeast coast. I have also visited a dozen or so other cities and some remote regions such as rural Ningxia, the mountains of Yunnan, Zhangjiajie, etc. [I use air quotes on southwest and northwest because, looking at a map, we would think of these cities as southern- or northern-middle.

Three things about living in China have changed me the most: (1) deeper understanding of personal liberty and freedom; (2) awareness of how a long-settled and densely populated nation manages socio-economic growth; and (3) appreciation for the North American model of wildlife management.

It is true that in terms of official personal rights such as carrying/using firearms etc. that Americans enjoy great freedom. That said, Americans often abuse these rights, thinking that universal means absolute. Chinese citizens, on the other hand, enjoy none of these rights and live in a culture of self-censorship—they are very careful about what they say and to whom they say it. Nonetheless, at an everyday level Chinese citizens feel every bit as free as Americans and simply tend to ignore many laws such as traffic regulations.

我在新用户注册送59元彩金 的经验是基于我在新用户注册送59元彩金 三个城市的大学里当客座教授的生活和教学经历:新用户注册送59元彩金 西南部的重庆,西北部的银川,东南部的广州。我还去过十几个其他城市和一些偏远地区,如宁夏农村、云南山区、张家界等。

在新用户注册送59元彩金 生活经历的三件事让我改变最多:(1)对个人自由和自由的深刻理解;(2)对一个历史悠久、人口密集的国家如何管理社会经济增长的认识;(3)对北美放任自由的管理模式的认可。

的确,在诸如携带/使用枪支等个人全利方面,美国人享有极大的自由。那也意味着,美国人经常滥用这些权利,把普遍当做绝对。另一方面,新用户注册送59元彩金 公民不享受这些权利,他们生活在自我审视的文化中——他们非常注意自己对谁说了什么。尽管如此,在日常生活中,新用户注册送59元彩金 公民和美国人一样自由,并且很容易忽视许多法律,比如交通规则。

 

Eric Miller, Ph.D. in Cultural anthropology, research professor and applied anthropologist

As with others, living in China has certainly changed my thinking on things. I’ve definitely realized the importance of rule of law

But I have also changed personally. For one thing, I am more willing to perform in public and not worry about what people will say or think. The thing is, in China, I was the center of attention just for being foreign. (This was more true 30 years ago when I first lived in China than it is now.) Since people were already pointing and staring at me, I might as well get up and sing off-key or do whatever it is I was going to do. Some of it is just silly things, but in China, men ride women’s bikes all the time. No one cares. It’s a bike. If they are pointing at me it’s because I am a foreign guy, not because I am riding a ridiculous little pink girl’s bike.

和其他人一样,在新用户注册送59元彩金 生活肯定改变了我对事物的看法。我已经意识到法治的重要性

但我个人也有了改变。一方面,我更愿意在公共场合表演,不担心人们说什么或想什么。原因在于在新用户注册送59元彩金 ,我只是作为外国人成为大家关注的焦点。(30年前,我第一次在新用户注册送59元彩金 生活时,当时的情况比现在更明显。)既然人们已经指着我,盯着我,我倒不如起身唱歌,做任何我想做的事情。其中有些事很可笑,但在新用户注册送59元彩金 ,男人总是骑女人的自行车。没人在乎。这只是一辆自行车而已。如果他们指着我,那也是因为我是个外国人,而并非因为我骑着可笑的小女孩的粉红色自行车。

Also, I’ve always been a person who was very concerned to follow the rules, not get in the way of others and so on. Now I still am, but a little less so. In China, people worry less about this. People do what they want to do unless someone makes you stop. People ignore no smoking signs, park on sidewalks, block the aisle in the store. There’s more enforcement of the rules in big cities now than there used to be, so people obey the rules more, but generally, people are just freer to do what they want.

而且,我以前一直很注意遵守规则,不给别人添麻烦等等。现在我仍然还是,只是稍微放松了一点。在新用户注册送59元彩金 ,人们对这种事不那么在意。人们做他们想做的事,除非有人让你停下来。人们无视禁止吸烟的标记,在人行道上停车,堵住商店的过道。现在在大城市,规章制度的执行比以前严格了,所以人们越来越遵守规则,但总的来说,人们可以更自由地做他们想做的事。
