Thought you’d like to see a few pictures of our home and compound. The “compound” is basically an enclosed neighborhood. The Chinese love walls and gates and our compound is surrounded by steel fencing on the back, 1o foot high cement walls on the sides and a manned entry gate out front and another guarded gate in the back.
A bit of green in a very grey city. Heard recently that the city power hoses trees in the spring to attempt to get all the dust (pollution) off.
Our apartment shares one wall with another apartment. Haven’t met these neighbors yet but I know someone plays the piano. Just wait until I get my guitar off the boat shipment.
We’ve met several families with kids. Mostly from USA but also Japan, Germany and France. Most people work at the embassies.
My new friend says the summers are very hot so we are looking forward to using the pool.
