I am an American living in Qingdao. Need assistance in finding/purchasing items? My company speaks Chinese fluently.

I'm actually the only one in our organization that natively speaks English - everybody else speaks Mandarin and at least one other Chinese dialect, or Japanese. One of our few strengths is our ability to source are own artwork.

I had a great time in Qingdao during my travels in 2007 - especially the brewery tour, and drinking the unfiltered beer at local restaurants. The only downside is the fact that I think half the taxi drivers are crooked there. I'd actually consider living in Qingdao myself, if not for the unscrupulous taxi drivers.
