Well, I have to apologize for the lack of postings this past week!  The internet was only just setup the other day and we have been hammered with Chinese language study!  Still I could have snuck it in had I been diligent, apologizes!  With that out of the way, I am now in the process of post-processing photos, uploading pictures, and finishing some code I didn’t get upload to work, but the connection will be slow for two reasons.  For one, Sensorship! For the entire Chinese population, all WordPress, Blogger, Twitter, Facebook and any other social media systems are blocked by “The Great Firewall of China.”  I hadn’t realized.  I was able to sneak a post in on my phone somehow but that no longer works – well for now :).  I was able to jump the firewall however, and have a PPoE piggyback through our IPSEC VPN at work, so post away I will :).  It’s Sunday and we finally don’t have classes so I’m spending the day getting caught up with life!  Love you all, and can’t wait to do a brain dump of my thoughts, notes, and photos here in the next day.

zài jiàn! (thanks Chloe, newbie mistake, lol)
