ISU v/s China

I am conflicted about what to tell you. I don't have a ton of time to blog, but I am going to try and get better about doing so. The conflict comes from whether to talk about what is going on at ISU, or what I am seeing and doing in China. Of course, I want to tell you everything, but I can only type so fast. You don't want to read a novel every day.

On one hand, the ISU schedule and curriculum is online, but that doesn't give you a good impression of what our daily life is like. On the other hand, China is a fascinating place, and I would like to share my stories. Likely you will get a mix of both.

Tomorrow we go to see the Great Wall of China. We are going to Badalin, which I hear is one of the more rebuilt and tourist oriented areas. (I would rather
go to a more rustic location on the wall. Perhaps I will arrange a trip later in the summer.)

What will tomorrow hold for you? What will you make of it? Anything you want.

Clearly, we'll eat up whatever you post!

That said, you should post the things that strike you the most - those will be the stories you tell best.

Just heard the Balticon interview and thought I'd check the blog as I just (well a week ago) returned from a trip to in-land China, back to my hometown Perth, Western Australia.

I found blogger/blogspot to be accessible so I could publish, but blog itself redfirewall.blogspot.com not accessible in China.

I'd be too conflicted travelling to anywhere incredible for work related activities. Being torn between getting work done (regardless how fascinating) with this unusual land to be explored must be difficult.
