I’m not sure what was causing the issues with the forum not displaying, but it’s back up and working now!
We also updated our Hohhot gifts page!
Use the site above to search for Hohhot’s post codes. Choose the city district, then the street. The streets are alphabetized according to pin yin pronunciation.
As a university student, I knew I wanted to spend a few years abroad after graduation, although I had no specific idea where in the world I would go. I ended up in Hohhot, capital city of north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, because a friend of a friend had studied at Inner Mongolia University and introduced me to the language study program there. I had this idea that being in China wasn’t remote enough or cool enough to have the kinds of adventurous tales I wanted to have upon my return to the United States, but somehow “Inner Mongolia” seemed like it might offer those kinds of exploits. Little did I know that moving to Hohhot would also mean that the next 11 years would be spent thinking of increasingly clever ways to explain that I do, in fact, live in China and not in the country of Mongolia. My current explanation usually involves this analogy: Inner Mongolia is to China as New Mexico is to the United States.
Read the rest of why I call Hohhot home.
How about you? Why do you call Hohhot home? Or do you? Do you see yourself as passing through or as a member of the community? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
I apologize for lack of updates these days. We made an unplanned visit to Beijing to get medical care for my husband. It was more of an ordeal than we had planned so taking care of him and our girls has taken all my time. But while we’re here I’ll try to post some things I’ve learned about Beijing that will be helpful for your future visits here.
Also, the Expat Exchange will resume next week on Friday Feb 28th. We’ll see you then!
