The good guys…All American Boys!

Jeffrey (on the left) is like me, a NJ native and I can consider him a God-send.  He was in one of my WeChat groups ( the way most communication is done here in China) and was quite helpful in giving me solid advice long before I was set to arrive.  I knew he worked for the same company, but didn’t expect that we would meet so soon.  He came into my building as I was preparing to exit and board the shuttle for immigration and handing over my passport this morning.  Typical me, I said hello to everyone in his group that passed me and it never dawns on me that he was the guy from the group.  Lol As luck would have it, he reached out later to see how things were going and to tell me he was at my campus for a mtg.  I was like, was that you this morning that passed me by ?  Lol Too funny!  I told him we had to do a pic together and he was gonna make my blog. Lol  Good sport…


The second fella is Daniel… I call him Boy Wonder because he got to a Beijing a whole week in advance just to take in the sights and wander around a bit.  He fears nothing.  He hails from Raleigh, North Carolina and is an Art Teacher in my building.  I love his spirit of curiosity and his lack of fear.  He just goes…he loves to explore.  He is also very helpful to us gals. He is also very funny! Never a dull moment when he’s around.  Today he was one of the people w me going to immigration services and the only one of the handful who had to have his bag checked after it failed the X-ray machine.  What did he have in it? A tool kit which looked to have a pair of scissors in there as well because he was going to assist another colleague with  something after work. Too funny. he didn’t get into trouble, but they held the tools outside until we were done with our business.  I tell him there is always THAT one… Daniel with his big heart, nomadic spirit and helpful soul.
