For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community.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 The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date.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

Changchun Friends

a great way to get involved

Second Hand Smoke

I was at Grandpas last night, having my usual drink " Brandy and water" and having a few smokes. We had a great time chatting and laughing with good friends.

later on on the evening the place started to get smoky from everyone smoking and I haven't really notice that someone was coughing.

Long story short when I went to pay my bill I notice young Derek was coughing a lot and I ask him if he was sick ? He replied no it was the smoke that was affecting him.

AT that moment…
