“Astronaut Commuter”

The Chinese use this term for people who travel thousands of miles to work in other countries. Today I met a man who has been driving a cab in my city since 1992. He is getting ready to retire. His family lives in his home country 8,000 miles away. He flies home to visit his wife and six kids.
