I believe my son has been to Shenyang!! He teaches English, has his own translation company and goes to Heilongjiang University where he is a Manchu major. He loves studying the "ancient" Chinese dialects. He's also been married to a wonderful Chinese girl for over 4 years now. What caused you to go to Dublin? I'm jealous as I would love to visit Ireland! My grandparents grew up in Cork and Sligo.
