US Embassy - Beijing, China
Beijing, sometimes romanized as Peking, is the capital of the People's Republic of China and one of the most populous cities in the world. The population as of 2013 was 21,150,000. The metropolis, located in northern China, is governed as a direct-controlled municipality under the national government, with 14 urban and suburban districts and two rural counties. Beijing Municipality is surrounded by Hebei Province with the exception of a neighboring Tianjin Municipality to the southeast.

Beijing is the second largest Chinese city by urban population after Shanghai and is the nation's political, cultural, and educational center. It is home to the headquarters of most of China's largest state-owned companies, and is a major hub of the national highway, expressway, railway, and high-speed rail networks. The Beijing Capital International Airport is the second busiest in the world by passenger traffic.

    I am and been trying to get work back in IRAQ, AFGHANISATN, or the US embasseies in China or Russia, but with no luck, I live in Thailand, even though I am an AMERICAN, I have tried many times on POC, but I never can apply or even find how to. I do not have CC and we do not have paypal here, I am very good at what I do, but it seems to me that if you live outside the US, you are not wanted, I have spent 30 years working for the US forces all over the world, but now ??????????
