Moving Abroad Questions: What’s For Sale?

24 Jun

In August, I will be officially changing my residence address to one in Xinzheng, China, selling my possessions here in the States and starting a new life over there.  I have been really blessed in that my University has established a Facebook Group for all the foreign teachers there.  All of us newbies are asking tons of questions of those who went before, and I thought I’d share some of the important ones as they come up.  If you are moving to teach or changing jobs for one overseas, you might want to ask your organization or contacts the same questions!

1. What’s for Sale?

I never really thought about, but sometimes the people leaving have things for sale.  Leaving teachers at my school are offering things like medicine, water purifiers, American towels, potted plants, shelving, curtains, etc.  The kind of things I don’t want to take, they don’t want to bring back, and no one wants to buy.  See what your place has to offer!

    I would like to ask you about this facebook group.
    How can I find it?
    I will move to Nanyang in Henan next month.
    Thank you

      Hello! Welcome to the area! Nanyang is a beautiful city, and Xinyang (close by) is also pretty awesome. We visited the area over the holiday – you MUST see the Dragon Pool Valley Scenic Area. Anyway, the name of the group you’d want is “Zhengzhou Laowai”. Zhengzhou is the largest city in the Province, and many people train up here. I’ve asked them if there is a Nanyang version too. Let me know if you have any questions I might be able to help with. Are you new to China or just relocating to Nanyang?
