Foreigners in China: To flee or not to flee?
Recently, a fellow blogger on ChinaDaily, Laoshi Dan(http://blog.chinadaily.com.cn/blog-1453444-35036.html) posted his final blog. It is unbelievable that cyber-limitations become the biggest barrier to make him continue to stay in China, no Google, no Epals or Wikispaces to draw teaching materials from. One of my friend from the United States has made a tough decision to leave China after he worked in Beijing for 5 years due to the air pollution is measurable.
A lot of foreign friends firstly came to China, like Laoshi Dan, like teamkrejados(http://blog.chinadaily.com.cn/blog-1372409-35178.html) arrived to this great country with an open heart filled with enthusiasm, curiosity, and eagerness to make a difference, they love China. Whatever others are crying about the bad conditions, their love to China is unwavering. However, just like teamkrejados said she is now somewhat jaded on the China experience. It is very, very cold in the winter and the air is dangerously polluted. Maybe I think, by and large, if foreigners have a choice, then they would rather go than stay.
Michael said on his blog that the only way he is going to leave China is that the authorities are going to have ban him from being China and force him to leave.(http://blog.chinadaily.com.cn/blog-787069-35253.html) As a Chinese, I am deeply touched by his zeal and persistence for China.
As a Chinese, of course, I hope you guys live in China and never pack up and leave. But I am very curious, for what reason, you finally choose to leave China?
