Since the establishment of New China, Yulin Prefecture was set up which headquarter was in Yulin County having jurisdiction over six counties including Yulin, Xinye, Bobai, Luchuan, Beiliu and Guixian.

        It's nice to know more about you Tom. After reading your  bio  I can see there we share many <a href="">siiltariimes</a> living here in China. I too have lived in China for 5+ years (first visited in 2002) living and doing business here. I also love many things about China   mostly related to its rich culture from long ago -and there are many things I don't like about China too. You could say that I enjoy much of the cultural/traditional side of China but I detest the Communist Party and their way of governing. No matter what I say about China, I do know this: If I left China tomorrow to go back home to California, I would miss China very much. I think China will always be my 2nd home seeing that I have many friends here and have many business concerns here as well. Over the years, I have helped 13 Chinese students get accepted in USA, UK and HK universities and am currently helping 3 more; one I've been teaching advanced English to for free for over four years. I one day plan to open a unique American-based teaching academy so that many more students can study abroad and have the chance for a better life. I would never be doing this sort of thing if I lived in California because I would be too distracted doing other things. So, like yourself, China has changed me considerably (mostly in a positive way!) and I'm still in the process of maturing in ways I never thought possible living as an American. I plan on visiting the few cities that I haven't yet seen in China so that I can say that I know China very well   better than 90% of the Chinese people living here. Then, I plan on writing a book about my life in America, my business successes while living in China, my many memorable experiences in China, and incorporating many of my blog posts into the book. I'm sure it will be very unique and interesting. I hope one day we have the chance to meet in person. If you're ever in HK or Shenzhen area, let me know. Cheers!
