    I came here thinking I had to learn to understand them but there was never any need I needed only to accept and enjoy themThey taught me thatNew Zealander Jane Carswell leaves her home and husband to live and teach English in Chonging China Her experiences interacting with and observing her students co workers and friends now belong to a China largely of the past Published in 2009 China has since become wealthy and outward looking though the widening gulf between rich and poor in the country may mean little might have changed in the China Jane came to know intimatelyThe sub title of this book is Two Journeys in China referring to the physicaloutward journey and the innerspiritual journey And Jane's reflection on her own situation and of those around her and of China itself are those of a genuinely interested and deeply reflective writerJane the teacher is also a student of life and through her experiences we the readers can learn something new about a part of the world most of us will have never visited and people we'll never meetThis is not the most riveting travel narrative I've read but I found myself appreciating Jane's story and wondering how many middle aged women would dare to do what she did and then write about it honestlyI can't be less than in awe of her determination and perseverance

    Three stars is not an insult it means that this book is on par with any other written on this topic I sense that I'd really enjoy getting to know the author based on her account of moving to China for a year making the necessary adjustments and then heading back to her ranch in New ZealandThe strengths of the book were its lack of salesmanship she isn't trying to convince anybody what a wonderful or horrible time she had and uiet dignity

  4. Linda Linda says:

    A beautiful thought provoking book A book about finding yourself listening to your inner voice the joy of teaching English to Chinese students embracing a spiritual life joy and a better understanding of the Chinese psyche A truly wonderful informative and life changing book On my favourite book list

    Good read good story and good author There are many thoughts in here that I would like to continue meditating on I am definitely much taken by the inner journey than the outer one The author has an interesting soul I can relate in many ways

    This was a very thoughtful book and a very different point of veiw to other travel books I have read as it was as much about the physical journey as a spiritual and mental oneReally liked it you learn alot about the Chinese people
