Re: Are there any ESL teachers in Liuzhou??
I, too, am considering teaching in Liuzhou. I have been there for a few days, walked the beautiful parks and climbed the mountain, after having taken the cruise down the Li River from Guilin to Yangshuo. I am a Canadian, presently teaching English in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, in North Central China. I would appreciate any advice myself about Liuzhou availble teaching jobs. I did not notice any foreigners there and was the subject of many curious persons' staring. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Herbal drinks are drinks made from boiling Chinese herbs. These drinks are boiled with traditional herbs for a long, long time - maybe for a couple of hours. Some are sweet in taste and some are bitter. You can either have it hot or cold. Each type of drink is for different ailment. You can tell the vendor your ailment and the vendor will prescribe the right type of herbal drink for you. If you need to drink the bitter ones, normally after drinking it, the vendor will give you a small portion of the sweet herbal drink to wash off the bitterness from your mouth. Normally these are sold in pushcarts. During a hot day, it's best to drink the cooling herbal drink - it's very refreshing and has a good cooling effect on the body.

Chinese Chess - an interesting game

Not only one table will be playing the Chinese Chess, but many.... so you can actually move around the area to catch the most exciting game. Most players are elderly people and they are so "into" it that sometimes an argument can occur but nothing serious will happen.
Shoe Shine, Anyone?
Don't worry about dirty shoes - you can get them shine along the pathways or walkways in Liuzhou. Simple shoe box containing of shoe shine, brushes and cloth - does the job. It is usually the ladies who shoe shine for you. All you need to do is to sit on the wooden stool and place your feet with the shoes on, on the slanting metal/wood shoe rest and the operator will firstly clean you shoes and then place some shine paste on your shoes. Then she will use a piece of cloth to even out the shine paste on the shoe. After that, she will use a piece of cloth to rub to and forth the shoe surface. No no time, hah...you have a pair of shiny squeky shoes.
