i am at a cyber cafe here in beijing. the connection
is really slow and there are others waiting to use the
computer so i will make it brief. i am having a
wonderful time here. everything is pretty amazing! i
am starting to recognize a few characthers in the
chinese language, including china and beijing (both
words are two characters, each). There is an amazing
mix of new and old culture, communism,old tradition
and new markets. wow, is all i can say.
the group i am with is really great, too!
well, on our second day, i have not done too mucy
shopping-- lots moreto go. the lectures we ahve been
going to have been very interesting, as well.
love you all!
ps. the food here is not much different than any
chinese place--even in the non tourist areas. i think
it will change in chengdu and xi'an!
