“The Assignment”

By Spacedteacher


I was already peeved when I arrived in Athens for my meeting with The High Commander. smile_angryWhat was so damn important that my vacation needed to be canceled with three weeks left? On top of that he kept me waiting for thirty minutes!! What a puushva!! Finally after the obligatory salutations and “Raising Of The Georgian Jale Of Cooperation” the meeting began. Georgia is very steeped in ritual. That can be a dangerous thing when you are already highly agitated at The High Commander’s stupidity. I needed to step lightly. Fortunately I was able to control myself. I just kept telling myself that he could make life very difficult for me so I better remain calm. Believe me as hard as it is to comprehend he could have sent me to a far worse place than where he eventually did. Praise Sheng Di!!!

My current job was as an Administrative Assistant to The High Commander. I was in charge of rather mundane matters such as getting potholes and street lights fixed, keeping the parks clean etc etc. It was a boring but not terribly demanding job. I could do it easily in my sleep. I was happy with my situation. I made reasonably good money and had plenty of time for my more recreational pursuits.


BUT NO!!! This Shinkra has taken it upon himself to advance MY career!! Who in the Hell asked him? Why can’t he just mind his own business? Over my strenuous objections I was being promoted!! I was to be the Attache of The Georgian Government to a Chinese University.  My primary responsibility was to teach the Chinese university students English and American culture. I also had cultural responsibilities such as attending plays,concerts,state dinners,art exhibits etc etc all in an official capacity!!



I felt CURSED!! smile_devilChina? Responsibility? WHY ME??


“The Adventures Of Spacedteacher In The Middle Cosmos { China }” are a collection of short stories based upon my actual experiences.They are written from the point of view of an American ” lao wai” { foreigner}. As is the case with all of humanity’s gardens there are flowers AND weeds.The Chinese garden is no different in that regard , they have flowers in the form of the Jardeen Roses and Jasmine and crabgrass in the form of the HaNazees. I try to weed the crabgrass while focusing on and accentuating the Jardeen Rose and Jasmine .
I have taken only the barest minimum of poetic license in an effort to make these stories more enjoyable to read for you. Trust me when I tell you it happened 99 % exactly as I tell it. All names have been fictionalized to protect the guilty from legal action be that civil or criminal and to protect the innocent from the guilty and most importantly to protect the author , yours truly , from the crabgrass in the Chinese garden. Those HaNazee can be vicious bastards!! lol
The HaNazee are well known for having an aversion to the spelling and grammar challenged among us. These guys are in the employ of the HaNazee.

“Captured Or Was  It Enticed By China “

By Spacedteacher


A soft Appalachian Breeze kissed the trees and caressed the birds in The Ozark Mountains of my home country America. American mythology says that America was created by God by blowing a kiss. Appalachian Breeze means “God’s Divine Kiss” . All living creatures stir with passion when they feel His Kiss. The birds burst into song as if proclaiming their love , the trees and flowers spring into bloom as if offering a dowry. All living things become gentle and peaceful.


I was sitting on the porch of my home gazing contentedly at the Ozark sunset while petting the Three Moons Of Pleeksa , my cats. In my fields the deer and antelope were grazing contentedly as the Appalachian Moon began to rise. The stars were beginning to emerge from their slumber to cast an eerie but comforting glow upon the night sky.The forest played it’s night music. I can remember thinking how beautiful it all was. A kaleidoscope for the senses!!!


The Cosmos was at rest. I was on vacation.
This was the world and situation I was captured from.

And then it happened!! My P.C.D. portable communication device or mobile phone as it’s known  to you Chinese clamored. Begrudgingly I answered it having no choice since it was The High

What a puushvaa !!!

Commander. I was summonsed to an immediate and very important meeting in Athens the state capital of my home state.Vacation over with three weeks left. Sometimes the Cosmos just SUCKS!!!



I didn’t realize it at that point yet but I had been captured or some would say enticed from my home.

My Chinese adventure was just beginning.

This English castle is actually a sea shell museum in the beautiful coastal city of Dalian in Liaoning Province , China

Dear Friends :

These are  slide shows of various neighborhoods in Harbin , Heilongjiang Province , China. They will be explained in the numbered list below

I hope you enjoy them.

1.The Central St. and Saint Sofia’s Russian Orthodox Church Neighborhoods of Harbin.

2. A combined Qiqihar / Harbin men’s ice hockey team playing the Korean White Tigers from Seuol S. Korea. Many of the players on the Chinese team are from the men’s national team.

3. My Harbin university’s campus.

4. The Harbin Ice Lantern Festival. This is an annual world famous event that takes place every year during the Winter Break / Spring Festival period in China which is determined by the lunar calender. Generally it is usually in Dec. and January. It can be as late as Feb. though. It draws tourists from all over the world. There are actually 2 sites for it. The bigger one is one the Songhua River. It’s Siberian Winter cold out there. Cameras are known to freeze up when trying to photo that one. These photos are from the one in Zhao Lin Park which is near the river but a bit more sheltered. If you’re ever in Harbin this will be one of the things you will defintiely want to see . It’s very impressive at night. These artists are amazing.

5. The Sun Island, Harbin Institute Of Technology and Tai Ping Jalefu neighborhoods of Harbin. Sun Island is a beautiful island park in the middle of the Songhua River in Harbin. It’s another place you’ll want to see if you come to Harbin.

6. The Chinese Women’s National Ice Hockey Team. Both the men’s and women’s national teams are based in Harbin
