 Ep 48: Steph: Me in Taiwan (blog); January 29, 2004 (recorded July 24, 2017) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 21:52

In this episode I read from a Me in Taiwan blog post I wrote on January 29, 2004 from Tainan, Taiwan and react to it so many years later on July 24, 2017 from where I was living in Shanghai, China. How to keep the creative fire going while teaching is a strong theme in this blog entry. My 2004 Taiwan self was reacting to the loss of creativity in my non-work time. My 2017 Shanghai self noticed that blog entry grumpiness was just me throwing a temper tantrum at my creativity going into teaching, instead of into my writing. It is amazing what you can realize with time, space and patience. I also ponder what to do after my current non-teaching job: do I teach again in the future and run the risk of losing my creative fire to the classroom again? Would love to hear from you!

 Ep 45: Guest: Jennifer: From America to China | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:17:00

Jennifer is an American who had been to over 70 countries before moving to China to teach at an international school but that did not stop this home country disappointment from kicking in. In this episode she reads a poem that she wrote a bit after her first year in China to her father about these cultural promises. And as we often do in Expat Rewind, we spend quite a while unpacking what this poem and the frustration in it means to her now, what has changed since she wrote it and so much more.

 Ep 41: Guest: Photographer Thomas Sandfield: Hong Kong 2012 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:50:21

Expat Rewind Website: https://expatrewind.podbean.com/   --------------------------------------------------   It is with extreme delight that we welcome Thomas Sandfield to the podcast in this episode. I can not think of a more perfect person to start off our multi-media experiment with Expat Rewind. In season 1 we focused primarily on the written word but in season 2 and beyond we will expand out to many more mediums-including photography, which is what Thomas does all so well. Thomas is from Norway and has lived in Hong Kong since 2012. In fact, it is now where he calls home. Have a listen to how his photography from his first year in Hong Kong tells us about his expat experience there: the joys, the heartbreak and the cultural shifts.    Thomas's website:https://www.thomassandfield.com/   Photos mentioned in the conversation:  17:15 Dreamer: https://www.instagram.com/p/eKLGtVA7dQ/?taken-by=thomassandfield   20:10-dancer: https://www.instagram.com/p/BnlaDO3gj7-/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=i2m7j2tfmbhf   23:41 Man and woman: https://www.instagram.com/p/BnWFbd6Bm5P/?taken-by=thomassandfield   28:25 Trash man: https://www.instagram.com/p/BnlaDO3gj7-/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=i2m7j2tfmbhf   36:28 Rock paper scissors https://www.instagram.com/p/BnlaDO3gj7-/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=i2m7j2tfmbhf   36:51  Bearded man:https://www.instagram.com/p/BnJA2_ShtQW/?taken-by=thomassandfield   40:24 Man gang:https://www.instagram.com/p/BnOXdu6BXxf/?taken-by=thomassandfield   44:14 T-rex: https://www.instagram.com/p/uUZMtAg7f8/?taken-by=thomassandfield   48:44; Dear god: https://www.instagram.com/p/BnO-A_Ph4zc/?taken-by=thomassandfield   43:44; You have it, you don't have it: https://www.instagram.com/p/uPlk7zA7d_/?taken-by=thomassandfield   1:12:56; Metal man: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bi4TY4yhXOc/?taken-by=thomassandfield   ----------------------------------------------------- Music courtesty of Damon Castillo, https://www.damoncastillo.com/ Song "Rocket of Love" on the "Mess of Me" album.
