Thanks for your patience folks.
I couldn’t blog such a long time because of the Chinese internet restrictions. That’s why I only had limited access to face book and the uncensored internet.
But now the time has come to get the last updates.
After finishing the year 2009 in Australia with a lot of “non-working-but-travelling-experience” we went to China to spend 7 months working and travelling there.
We worked hard and tried to use our spare time to visit as much as possible places in China. Well, the people are quiet strange and there are really a lot of them in China. Of course there are also so called “normal” people (in our understanding), but unfortunately these are exceptions. The majority does behave like small kids, is independent and have really disgusting customs (spitting everywhere accompanied with loud noises, long fingernails to clean ears and noses without any shame and if they clip the finger nails then mostly in public places. ETC).
Nothing against Chinese people because they also quiet friendly and take care of you.
As a result I would say you can really feel the big cultural difference if you come as a European to China.
That doesn’t mean that I didn’t like my time there. I really enjoyed it and I am fascinated of this huge amazing country. Things are only different there and more adventurous.
We also met with some of the best good old friends of Europe, hosted our families in Shanghai and travelled with them through the south of China. I definitely return to China to see more and study more Chinese in the Kingdom of the middle.
Diana had to leave China one week earlier because they didn’t extend there visa. So she flew to a small paradise in Thailand – Koh Tao. Meanwhile in China I had enough time to prepare the departure. With an engagement ring in the backpack I arrived one week later in the paradise to get a rest and ask the question of the questions.
A dental incident and some nice days later which we spent in Bangkok and Hong KongHHHHon we arrived San Francisco. We had a great time there together with Diana’s (and now also my) family ;-) (Hector his sisters and Diana’s brother with his wife) and we were hosted first class.
Finally we arrived in Peru and in our new life. And here we are!!
Landed in Peru, already working, driving and exploring again. We already start to settle down and to organize our wedding on 08th of January 2011.
The latest pictures (probably not uploaded yet) are from the last long weekend trip in Perú…
Nos vemos chicos
