We are now officially Foreign Residents in the beautiful coastal city of Xiamen. After two wonderful years in Wuyishan, we decided it was time to move on. Next term we start teaching at Xiamen University of Technology.

Moving house in China was kind of interesting… It cost us just over $100 AUD to get 23 boxes and 3 bicycles transported by truck from Wuyishan to Xiamen (12 hours drive). The boxes arrived looking like they’d all done 3 rounds with Rocky Balboa. Gashes and splits everywhere, hastily patched up with blue tape, our belongings spilling out all over the place. All my glasses bar one were reduced to glass powder. The wire basket on Aria’s bike was totally crushed. But hey, at least nothing went missing in the move!
