Our new home is in an area called Jinqaio (pronounced - Gin Chow). If you slurred to your taxi driver while out drinking in downtown Shanghai, passed out and woke up in Jinqaio you would have thought that he put you on an airplane back to Wichita, Kansas. Many like to say that it you are in the 'bubble', protected from the extremes that China has to offer. This little area of Pudong, Shanghai is also known as Green City and has a large population of expatriots (aka - expats). With the large number of foriegners comes many of the comforts of their homes - like Mexican, Irish, American and German restaurants; Starbucks; churches; and many large homes that expat's companies afford to those crazy people that decide to move their families from Florida to the other side of the planet.
