THE CHINESE CONNECTION


China is my fatherland. I have been away for twenty years now, but because I had spent the first twelve years of my life in China, it is still very much part of my life. Over the years of finding my identity and learning about sustainability, I have reconciled with China on so many fronts. Yet a large part of my pursuit still remain to be confronted. I have compiled a list of blog entries I have referenced my nostalgia for China. I hope these random thoughts will not only help me understand China, but it may help you see China in better ways.  Jin
