I finally found a way to escape the daily grind of American life which I lived for 30 years. After working like a dog and enduring stress related medical problems I decided to become an Oral English teacher in a Chinese University. I work three part time days per week and get a free place to live with bills taken care of. My pay is 800 dollars per month which allows me to save a couple hundred. Holidays are paid. Life is great. I miss the states but the expectations and work kept rising every year (from the standpoint of a public school teacher) and I took a year off in order to learn more about China.
Working in China is a better deal for me so I believe I will stay here for a while. I still plan to retire in my truck camper but I will put this off for another 15 years hoping that I will receive some sort of pension.
