About Me

My name is Rich Ristow, and I have been living in China since 2014. In particular, I have called the city of Changzhou home. I have blogged extensively about the place in Real Changzhou. I also travel, and on occasion, blogged about other places in Real Jiangsu.  Currently, I teach English at Hohai University.  In 2017, I was named an Honorary Citizen of Changzhou. I hold three degrees related to English, and the most recent was a master of fine arts in poetry.
