American In Chongqing

Hi everyone, 

    My name is John I'm 28.  I have been living in Chongqing, China for about 5 months now. I moved from New York City with my wife and son.  She's Chinese and works as a Photographer.  My background is in Filmmaking and project management.  I feel lucky to have the opportunity to experience live in China , but if I'm being honest, I miss a lot about the US. I think what I miss the most is speaking English and being able to strike up conversations with people. I've been pretty quite for the last few months. But, I'm making an effort to learn Mandarin and would definitely appreciate any tips from locals or maybe getting together to talk.

I like:
Music
Films
Art
Reading
Video Games
Walking
Hotpot ( still trying to get used to spicy food)
Exercise
Photography
And talking. 

Ttly
John.

you'll be fine. You are just going through culture shock. That's all.
