Meet the Constrictor

Constrictor. Art by Andrea Di Vito.

Hi, my name is Boaz, and nobody actually calls me “The Constrictor”; If you are here by mistake and are looking for that guy in the picture please follow this link.

A few other tidbits about myself:

  • I was born in Israel.
  • I have lived and worked in China for almost half of my life.
  • I speak native Hebrew and English; and relatively fluent Chinese.
  • I once biked all the way from Kunming to Chongqing.
  • I have been running a business in China for almost 10 years.

In the weeks ahead, I will talk about some of the following:

  • Living in China.
  • Business in China.
  • Chinese Culture.
  • Being an Israeli in China.

First, though, I will tell you about a bike ride.

A preliminary and preparatory statement; an introduction.

Wuzhen, China. 2003.

In May 2013, I finally took that big step: I registered a domain name and installed WordPress; but then realized I still have a problem with the entire concept of a personal blog.

Why should people be bothered to read what I think — about what I find interesting?

I am also not sure if I actually want to share my opinions with the world and then deal with the comments and criticism. I am also not sure if I want the people I know to know exactly what I am thinking.

But a year and eight months later I have decided to give it a shot after all.
