While the other Israeli blogs on China are disappearing, it’s nice to find new ones. Naama and Zohar left to southern China and have been writing about their lives in a new Hebrew blog translated "Just like home, but completely different".
Here’s a quick translation from their introduction:
When we went to study Humanities, we didn’t think much of it. "What ever will be will be" we told ourselves. "We’re going to need a Masters in something, so why not enjoy ourselves in the meanwhile?", so here – not too many years after that, we find ourselves packing a few suitcases and two boxes in order to go find our destiny in Dong-Guan, a city in the industrial area of Southern China. When we first came here as backpackers after the military service, we just passed by this whole area in a few hours drive, on the way to the more "authentic" east. But even here, in the so called "western" area, there’s a lot to get used to.
