    Good for you Jocelyn. Let us know how you like it, and tell me about the heating system during winter.

    I read most of your online copy.

    Hi Jocelyn. That’s fantastic. My husband and I have live in Beijing, not too far from the China daily offices actually. I’d love to meet you in person once ur settled! Unfortunately, because of the 19th congress meeting, Beijing is a little crazy right now eg traffic and subway is a little insane at peak hour but it will soon be back to normal.

    Congrats, Jocelyn! Have fun in Beijing! Have you lived there before? It’s my favourite city in China (if it wasn’t for the pollution, it would be perfect haha), although this special place in my heart could be because when I lived there I was still a student.

    But I have a question, how will you feel about working for a newspaper that allows articles that state ‘there is no sexual harassment in China’, and that it only a problem in ‘western countries’ ?

    I would be concerned you feel compromised is approving such articles as this that put a negative spin on things you know to be untrue.
