Join Couchsurfing to see James’s full profile.
I'm a North Carolinian and UNC grad. I've lived and worked in China. Cooking is one of my favorite things to do, along with playing Go, listening to public radio and cycling. I believe traveling is a waste of time if you don't take time to meet some locals.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
My couch is available most times. I would like to meet up with folks traveling in China or the US. My location of last login will often be a place in the US (even when I'm in China) because I use a VPN to bypass the Great Firewall of China.
I have stayed with a CS member once in Vermont and it was a blast. I've also participated in local gatherings. You can count on most CS members to be helpful, friendly and interesting.
