We got a new guy at work today and we were in the office chatting about what we did before coming to Yangzhou. I’d forgotten this part about expat life, how it’s already time to say goodbye to one person and meet a new arrival.
“First, I got my degree in a truly terrible subject for finding a job,” my new coworker told me.
“Oh really? What was that?” I asked. As a classics major, I’m always so happy to hear about others who studied what they really liked, especially if that rambling career path leads to China.
“Classical studies.” he said.
