Wow. In a country like China, I wouldn't think people were free to socialize. Just make sure you don't look at the political subforum. We wouldn't want you to get in trouble.
Ath, you are hilarious!!

Anyway... one thing I'd suggest is finding a routine that gets you out of the house consistently. If you have a good excuse for going to the same place at the same time everyday, eventually people will become comfortable enough with you that they will engage you in conversation, if they're your equals in terms of social status.
sounds good to me...
