I'm Anna and I've been a 外国人 or 'waiguoren' for about 9 months so far in Zhengzhou, central China. Waiguoren literally means foreigner and as one of about 200 westerners in a city of a few million, I feel very very foreign. When I walk around campus or in town, everyone watches me and calls out "laowai" ("outsider") or "hellooooo". My site is a record of my time here: the good, the bad, and the weird!
