Chai Digest: Expats, Corrupt Officials Paving Roads, Guns and more

Big backlog at Chai Digest so I am battling the Chinese ‘Great Firewall’ to get this out.

Quote of the week from the FT’s Lucy Kellaway in Should I plot the downfall of our dean?:

Most of the academics I’ve ever come across find long running feuds and resentments are vital for their wellbeing as they provide them with a sense of purpose and emotional charge that is often sadly lacking in the day job.

Thanks Reuters Travel Chai (RTC) still remembering your readers and tried so hard to publish this issue behind the wall . I absolutely love the final link of “Second Half of 2015 Travel” as it leads me to a whole new world other than the main stream yet commercial travel blogs. Jason’s North Korea trip 10 years ago was inspiring but also nostalgia ( good old day of Continental air). Sometimes I feel I am reading the first generation of RTC. And what a handsome and tall man who have been traveling more countries than you. Definitely my new crush!

Re: the quote of the day. I daresay that this applies to any workplace that I have been involved in, both academic and nonacademic.

Thanks again for these Digest Posts – I was able to snag the full Lonely Planet PDF for New Zealand. Always interesting stuff you come across.
