For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community.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 The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date.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.

I am a soil biologist and ecologist and until september 27th I have a three month stay here in Changchun for investigating the Northeast wetlands. Here in Changchun I work for the Northeast Institute of Geography and Agroecology, CAS. My home workplace is the Johannes Gutenberg-University of Mainz. But I'm sure to return to this wunderful place, because the people are really nice and the wetlands are an absolutely exciting environment :). I hope to meet some of you in my time in Changchun... See you :)
