Home is a roof over a pig

I'm ready for the next volume of Arrington's memoirs. I really enjoyed her story of teaching English in China. After her husband's retirement from the military they both go to teach English in smaller city's college. With them on the adventure are their three children, the youngest of which was adopted earlier in China. I really enjoyed her story of becoming integrated into her town and class room. Scattered through out she looks at Chinese characters and breaks down their component parts to see what it says about the culture. Just really enjoyed this memoir.
