The Odd ‘Twilight Zone’ of Not Knowing When I’ll Visit the US Again – Pub’d on WWAM BAM

The group blog WWAM BAM just published my latest piece titled The Odd ‘Twilight Zone’ of Not Knowing When I’ll Visit the US Again. Here’s a snippet:

I have no idea when I’ll return to the US to visit my family.

Writing these words out feels strange enough, let alone allowing the reality to settle into my post-pandemic mind. But it’s the truth. I really don’t know when it might happen.

There are a lot of reasons why it just isn’t feasible, particularly the fact that for foreigners from the US, getting back to China isn’t a sure thing.

Read the full piece here — and if you like it, share it!

  1. I feel you. I’m dying to see my Polish family and friends. Yet I can’t leave China for as long as I’m not sure I’ll be allowed to come back. There is financial thing, too. And the fact that I would be on quarantine for one month and a half altogether.

  2. I’ve been a long time reader and have appreciated your insights and humor on many topics (and photos of you guys being an adorable couple are an added bonus lol), you’ve also given a unique perspective as someone in China before and during (wish I could say after) the pandemic. I cannot read Chinese and unfortunately, some western journalism on the subject is quite biased, so this blog has been a good source on what its been like over there. I’m sorry to hear about the continued delay with visiting your family. Zoom and technology can only replicate so much.

    Whew what a long winded ramble! What can I say I wanted my first comment to be memorable 🙂
