I live in Mainland China, in Northeastern China. Am an american citizen and have lived here 7 years and absolutely love living here.
Google routes to Hong Kong Google server, social sites such as Facebook and twitter are not allowed, but am thankful for that. Skype, and its Asian
counterpart QQ is very popular in China as it saves on phone expenses and allows video conferencing. Ive been posting on ATS for several years and
have never had issue accessing or posting on ATS... many Chinese read this site without posting, some stories and posts are very informative, such as
the archaeology and religion, space and technology threads.
China is not as oppressive as everyone makes out to be, as long as govt policies are followed there is more personal freedom than in US, which is
hard to explain until my friends come to visit and see for themselves. Business is fantastic, 300-400% in real estate appreciation since moving
here, without counting the currency increases of Yuan against USD.
anyway just my 2 cents about China...its a wonderful place to live as long as you follow policies.
