"... I've lived in Guatemala for 10 years, so let's just say I've managed worse"
that comment make me sad ~''~
great article as always! :D thanks for sharing ^^
nice text!! thank you so much for sharing.
I grew up in Manizales, a small city in Colombia, and I lived in Bogotá and after a couple of years move to Tunja. The both lasts cities don't speak spanish with my accent, and life style is completely different. Last year I went to Taiwan, and some time ago I just move here. That situation make me think and re - thing about my identity, my roots, then I consider, culture, language and accent, manners, food, all of this are things outside our reality. In fact they make us a person but without a deep reflexion on what we are, those facts "take our lives" and give to it a meaning, which is, in my opinion, kind of superficial.
More over, humans have the weird necessity to belong in a group, but belonging somewhere helps to forget what we truly are. Once we belong somewhere, that surrounding give that meaning and we justify ourself by our group. From some point of view it's ok and from some point of view it let us forget deep things of our reality as human beings.
Ok I'm talking so much XD
but, I think everything in this world must to be flexible, and this is not intelligence but wisdom is about, to know how, where and when to be flexible. The example she provide is just a good example how to be flexible and make everybody happy.
this is... spiring D:

About to move to ChengDu again, I noticed google things are banned so I will need a good and stable VPN. I bought one and it never worked in my computer, once I go back home, the VPN works without any problem. Also, most of the frequent used VPN websites are already banned so... what are you doing guys? What can you recommend me?
what about MoneyGram or WesternUnion, from far that's the easiest way to send money
(A little scroll down can find my reason why I won't choose here to study chinese so you can skip some paragraphs XD)
By this holidays time I got issues with SiChuanHua. Fist, it is normal that local older people doesn't have a clue of how to speak normal pudong hua. For example, the owner of my room, he doesn't speak any budonghua, and when we have to communicate, he take a peace of paper and write some letters, and in that way we understand each other. Taxi drivers always speak budonghua, but with a really strong accent.
Normally young people speaks very standard chinese, if you talk one to one, or if you speak in a office environment, you will have to use mandarin almost all day.
BUT HERE COMES THE REASON why, if I can, I won't choose SiChuan to study chinese. As I wrote, talking one to one you can always get a complete conversation in very correct and standard chinese, but when you are in a group of people, they ALWAYS will use Sichuan hua to chat. If you are with two friends, they will speak in sichuan hua. Then is kind of useless, when a chinese person talk, with our foreign face, they will use a simple and clear chinese (unless you show an exceptional speaking skill), but between them, they will use a natural language and that's the language we are suppose to catch. So when they are about to speak the "real natural street spoken chinese", they will use Sichuan Hua.
In the north mandarin is the local language, then it will be sure you will always hear mandarin. I were in Taiwan, and I think there is also a good place to learn chinese. Even the accent is not very correct, but people are always speaking in mandarin. At least, in the north of the island they do, as far as I know in the south they use more MinNan Hua.
well finally I got thousand of problems linking the account to my paypal, just myself bad typing or stuff like that.
Now my question is, can be a UnionPay card be linked to Paypal?
I want to pay my hosting account, when I try to pay it using paypal, there are some cards as an option, but UnionPay don't appear. Naturally I haven't linked any credit card to my paypal account, then I don't know how the linked cards appear. So, my question is, can I use the credit card to pay the hosting even if the unionpay doesn't appear as an option, just knowing that once linked the card should appear in the list?
