    BUT - I am getting settled a bit now and will put my mind to something soon smile

              I'm doing great thanks.  Most of the summer teachers have left here now but I'm staying on for a few more weeks. 

              I'm still looking for another contract preferably one I don't have to commit for for too long?  I seem to be anti any type of shackles these days!

                How much do they pay down there ?

                  Pay isn't fantastic in places, but it varies a MASSIVE amount depending upon the job. 
                  The cost of living is very very low and so if you want to its easy to save.   I buy three huge bags of groceries and supplies and spend around 15-20USD.

                    20 USD would be about 120 Yuan and that would be about the same prices as here if there were no expensive imported stuff in that basket !  a beer is around 3.5 Yuan for a 500mm bottle = 50- cents  most normal cheap veg o.8 to 5 Yuan per half kilo = 10 to 70 cents per kilo.

                    the normal going rate here is between 3500 and 4500 Yuan per month with accomodation and services (and a return flight per year) free. How does this compare ?
