Mainland Ronin

Shanghai, 2013. A Japanese restaurant in preparation of opening for the day. Wikipedia:  A rōnin (浪人) was a samurai with no lord or master during the feudal period (1185–1868) of Japan. A samurai became masterless from the death or fall of his master, or after the loss of his master’s favor or privilege.In modern Japanese usage, the term also describes a salaryman who is “between employers” or a secondary school graduate who has not yet been admitted to university. Furhter detail explanation at Wiktionary for 浪人.

I consider myself a ronin too who has been hanging around in China for years.
