Mike was an IELTS student in Shenyang,

and my first friend in China.

January 2003.


His father was a medical doctor,

his mother a high ranking official in the Liaoning Railway,


and his girlfriend was from the large Korean community in Shenyang.


After only a few months in China,

I was still unfamiliar with the local culture.




 We had some good times together.




Sally was a lecturer in computer technology at Liaoning University.

I had a crush on her, but she was not interested

as she was on her way to study at the University of Chicago.
