I am a teacher in Wuxi China. As a woman I feel very safe. Living here and working here is like have about 15 big brothers. My office is prominently male, and whenever I go out I feel like I am flanked like the president. Living and working in China has been great. My landlord is excellent and works well with me, because random things break all the time. My neighbors are nice too, even though we don't understand each other. I gave him the number to our foreign service officer in case I have ever had problems, and he called him once, when my key snapped in my door at 5 am and he came right out to help me. I have made some great new friends and it feels like a family here. Sure the buracracy can be a little awkward, but all in all I have enjoyed my time here so far and I think I may stay here longer.
