The China Adventures Of Arielle Gabriel


Anhui was so exciting, so unique, and in the end so terrifying, let's just say much will be left unsaid.
The central issue was that my employer was not following the government rules of China concerning housing of foreign teachers: he had a plan to have his friends in the local authorities fine teachers at the end of their terms, before he had to pay them, and split the difference with his friends.
The fine was for the illegal housing, at his own mansion, so the story verged on the picturesque, as I lived in great style, with increasing anxiety - once I received some pay, I wanted to move to a budget hotel, to follow the housing laws for foreign workers.
More later.
Advice to other teachers:
You have to live in special areas allotted for ESL teachers, hotels, dormitories in schools, and not private homes when you are in CHina, especially rural and out of the way areas where these rules are strictly adhered to.
I fled like someone in a Hollywood adventure movie, arriving in historic Nanjing in a summer rainstorm, walking along dark streets, looking for a hotel, finally aided by sweet young women on their way home from secretarial jobs.
