For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.
Just discovered a new coffee "shop" on Longli Lu just down from Lixin as you head towards Renmin, (across from the Boy/Girl Bar).
Coffee is good, atmosphere really nice, wi-fi, A/C, clean.
Daily specials, and right now 20 to 50% discounts.
They have a great fresh mango drink if you don't drink coffee. Worth checking out.
Love me some coffee!
The place will be open again on Monday, they had to close for a week due to NO water or electricity...bummer. However do check them out after Monday Aug. 27th.
I think that will happen a lot, especially with the new road system being made...
