An apology of sorts...and an expectation of things to come

Thanks for following the blog as I navigate my way through Beijing. I have seen some Wei guo ren (outsiders) as I walk through Di Tan Park (for the festival) but other than that, I mainly get stared at by everyone. Beijing post Olympics is very English friendly as the subway signs and some other stuff is in English. At least, people are speaking to me in Chinese, I just have no idea what they are saying.
So the group is off for a 10 day adventure through Central/Western China. We will not be in wireless or wired land, so no internet, therefore, no blog. I will have lots of catching up to do with the blog when I get back. This is really a full time job!
So we return on the 11th of Feb and we start school at Jingshan on the 16th. I have to give a speech in Chinese at that time. I haven't written it yet, but Miles said he would help me through it.
So I promise to have tons of pics and even video that documents our trip. You can follow along as I already have mapped it out on the map included with this blog. Happy travels to all of you as I prepare to survive an overnight train ride during the height of travel in China.
