ARTURO PÉREZ-REVERTE | XLSemanal | 7 de enero de 2007
Ocurrió hace demasiado tiempo. Cuarenta y dos o cuarenta y tres años, por lo menos. Para un mozalbete fascinado por el mar y los barcos, Cartagena era territorio propicio. A veces me escapaba de clase en los maristas aprovechando la hora del recreo, e iba al puerto, respirando el olor característico de todo aquello –brea, hierro, estachas húmedas, viento salino– mientras escuchaba el… Continue

What a strange and jumbled world we live in when I get busted for putting up a picture with sexual undertones on a local sign board and then people are putting up widgets gadgets and advertisement that show the act straight up. Man who judges this stuff anyway. I noticed the students that write the paper at Beijing University are at it again. China has entered into it's sexual revolution in these years to follow nobody will be safe from the world of sex. It's about time is all I can say. Sex is… Continue

Day two of this blogging stuff and its Friday. Man you know what I was just thinking....remember TGIF? No not the restaurant that serves some of the best appetizers but the Friday night TV lineup on ABC that was popular during the late 80s and early 90s: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TGIF_(ABC) .
"Perfect Strangers" was a great show and Balki Bartokomous is one of the most memorable TV characters of the 80s. The show wouldn't survive because America would rather watch reality TV or… Continue
Today one pretty girl came to my studio and ask me to put the make up for her, the first impression of her is that she is so slender, small waist with big brest, very sexy, good figure, after the greeting, I ask her take a sit and I started to put the make up for her.
For the profession habit, I need to build a good relationship with my guest, so I praised her: " you are so slender, how could you keep such a good body ?" she smiled and tell me a story, she said she was so fat before back 2… Continue
First blog entries are always difficult for me. I can never decide on what I want to talk about. I don't want to bore anyone with my daily happenings yet I want to tell people about funny things that happen. Well today I had an "open" class and two other teachers (both Chinese) came to watch my class and one guy was videotaping it. Yeah, I know, intense right? Well the topic of discussion for the last week has been art and we've talked about art from different time periods. But today I chose to… Continue
From April, China Government changed its visa conditions.
If you have official Z or X visa, it's no problem.....But so many foreigners got F or L visa....For this if you want to know correct informaton, please refer this website.
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember
what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible
without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to
others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their

vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with
others, you may become vain and… Continue

Sometimes, I have no idea what's going to happen with my photos. Monday, I opened the Daily online and to my surprise, found one on the front page.That's always a nice thing to experience. It's not a great photo by any means, but it's there. In the picture above is Eddie Pittman. We came to China together 4 years ago with the CTLC program. Here's… Continue
This is the first story I wrote for the Travel page, a few months back. I've been to Chaozhou three times now, and I'll probably keep going back; it's that good. If you haven't been there yet, I would highly recommend a visit. It has a special feeling that can't be found in every Chinese city. Here's a few more photos from trips to Chaozhou in… Continue

I just saw this in the South China Morning Post and thought should share with you. Looks like the new visa rules are going to make things a little more challenging, at least until after the Olympics. Many countries impose similar Visa rules prior to hosting big events like the Olympics so this is not unusual and it seems only temporary. Here is the bottome line: Do not overstay the term on your Visa! If you do, you will risk being deported from China and you will have a difficult time… Continue
