Wilson Sims Gibson, an English teacher from the United Kingdom, has lived and worked in Baoding, North China's Hebei province for over a decade. Over the years, he fell in love with the city and settled down with a family.

The 53-year-old man came to Baoding in 2012 and has taught spoken English at a local kindergarten for years.

For him, coming to China and becoming a member of a Chinese family has been a fascinating experience. It has strengthened his attachment to the city he lives in.

His wife, Zhu Yixiao, is a native of Baoding, a city that's about 150 kilometers southwest of downtown Beijing. He met Zhu in Beijing back in 2012 through work. Over time, he found himself falling in love with her.
