I have put a lot of thought into it and weighing various problems I have decided to leave China. The most important reason is I miss my wife and baby. But also China in the last few weeks has become not so accommodating of foreigners. Attacks at foreigners owned stores have become more common and I prefer to stay alive. While I have not been physicaly attacked I have been followed and protested because of my shopping habits. There is a perception here that many stores support the Tibetan cause and these stores are protested. There have been incidents in Shanghai of people being attacked for shopping at these stores.
So I have sold my schools and will be returning to the U.S. perhaps in a few years when China grows up a little more I will return. Until then I will keep posting from the safety of my American home, surrounded by my loving family.
