Hey everyone I'm Asher, I'm due to arrive in Beijing on November 5th. Looking for a roomate (or 2). I'm pretty laid back, very organised (I'm normally the one to make lists and set reminders) and easy to get along with (So I've been repeatedly told)

Male/Female welcome, must be a non smoker...I would say I prefer outgoing, adventurous people, but that pretty much applies to everyone on here :)

You are welcome to get in touch for more details at : ad_harris@live.co.uk

Hi everyone,

I will be arriving in Beijing next week and I’m looking for one or two people to share an apartment with.  I’m from Boston, Massachusetts and I’m 22.  I love traveling and adventure so I can’t wait to explore the city, the rest of China and beyond in my free time!  I enjoy sports and fitness and keep my room and space pretty neat. I haven’t been told where in Beijing I will be working, but it would be great to live near enough for a short subway ride to the office.  If you are interested message me here or shoot me an email: aro445@verizon.net.

I am interested in Haizhu definitely.. I've heard "Guangzhou's Haizhu district devoted to exhibitions, a wide range of performances, and affordable booze offered as unpretentiously as possible in a world of nauseating pomposity." That just sounds interesting to me. I would love to live close to the metro. Would love to have some outdoor space, would be nice to grill as well as maybe have some plants! :) we should talk. I am open to other locations as well. I have been given an agent to work with as well when I get there, from someone who is there and had trouble with other agents.
