“Hello, my name is slut”. Not exactly the way most travel blog posts start. But my friend Alex Jungwirth, an Economics Lecturer at Soochow University in Suzhou, China, blogs about the weird sides of moving to a different continent. Like meeting a Chinese girl who decided her chosen English name should be Slut because she likes the “ssl…” sound (come to think of it, it is pretty).
Alex is amazingly intelligent (she’s working as a professor at age 21!). She’s also one of those great people you can discuss international political economics with while shopping for corsets.
I have no doubt she’ll continue to produce funny and insightful blog posts and add more to her list of Common Chinese Stereotypes. So head over to Journey to the East and make sure she has too many readers to quit her recently launched blog.
