As far as behavioral traits, who is to say what constitutes "fitting in"?

Something that greatly interests me are expat programmers, specifically Americans working in Asia.
I know of one American programmer who is working in Beijing, China. He has done some Perl, including a Mason project called "Brick Builder," I believe. He keeps an online journal, but sadly his site was down the last time I checked.
What interests me about his situation are the cultural differences he encounters at his work place. What are Chinese programmers like in China? What are the work habits? How does he fit in?
Teaching English is a very popular way for westerners to work and live overseas. But I would like to see how far my programming skills will take me. Can Perl take me to the other side of the world? Why not.
