Don’t change your clothes

It’s fine

Keep up to date on the latest China giraffe vlog videos by subscribing to Hello Foreigner on YouTube.

Content warning for existential dread and meat. This week’s vlog thoughts consider how often one should change their clothes. In our part of China, it’s actually OK to wear the same outfit for a few days in a row. Not to bed, of course. That’s what pajamas are for.

A semi-secret park on a blue-sky day

A New Year’s city adventure

There was a park and a nice day. You do the math.

Luzhou has some beautiful parks tucked into some surprising corners. This one, you reach from a busy overpass that’s all malls, restaurants and an amusement park. It’s a really nice green space that takes you down to the Tuo River.

Happy Thanksharing, to all our fellow Foriegners

A time of year to spread existential cheer

This holiday season, we’ve declared Thanksharing! It’s a time for friends and family to get together and tell each other how awesome Hello Uncle Foreigner is! Your roommate’s brother studying Mandarin; your cousins who travel to China each Spring Festival; your ski instructor … Thankshare with all of them the glories of HUF. Subscribe to our YouTube channel to catch all the latest videos right when they hit the ‘net.

And happy Thanksharing to all Foreigners, wherever you are!

Foreigner

  • A person whose homeland is a country different from the one in which they are presently extant
  • A super-rocking band that you love
  • One of a tribe of wacky misfits who has always felt a little on the outside of everything, but has found a spiritual home in the works of Hello Uncle Foreigner

Video: Guitar with Mr. Super

No more school work, let’s make music

Guitar with Mr. Super from Uncle Foreigner on Vimeo.

Graduation time is here, releasing a new crop of students out into the world, and freeing up their time for guitar lessons.

Zhang Yu Jie — formerly Mr. Super, an English name that he’s discarded — has been our friend for the past three years. Determined to improve his English, he would practice with us as much as he could, finding us between classes, walking with us wherever, getting in those precious few moments of face time during his busy school schedule.

On our part, we learned that he is a really sweet, hard-working young man. Raised on a farm by his grandparents with his twin sister Lily, he has big dreams. The video above takes from an interview we conducted last spring, and a group guitar lesson Peter gave last month with Lily and a few friends.
