I'm going to describe my nephew Joel. I have 2 nephews but I know Joel the best because he was older when I left England. He's 11 years old now & he's at secondary school. He doesn't seem to be adolescent yet but I'm sure it's very imminent. He's the year of the monkey, his Chinese horoscope sign, and his western one is Aries, ram, male sheep thing, so he's quite a wild creature and he can climb brilliantly. He's been to stay with me in Hong Kong on his own & been really independent; very popular with everybody, he made lots of friends & really good company, but I have a feeling that when he gets to be a teenager, he might be trouble.
