Captain's Log.

China.  China is cool.  That's why you want to see pictures. 
Me.  I am funny-looking.  That's why you want to see pictures.
You.  You are bored.  That's why you want to see pictures.

(Remember, if you click on the pictures, you can see them full size.)

I'm standing in Tianenmen Square.
Behind me is a gate to the Forbidden City,
 with a large picture of Chairman Mao, looking friendly.

This is Pei Zhuan, holding monkey. 
Does anyone think he feels silly right now?

Monkey liked the bamboo in the Forbidden City.
Hopefully the sign didn't read "No Monkeys Allowed!"

Here I am eating Chinese fare in the home of Pei Zhuan's parents.

This is a group shot of Pei Zhuan's family, myself, and one of our guides.
Taken at a famous cultural museum.

This is the rooster that was carved out of hard jello.
Just one more of those fancy dinners with toasts, and all...

I did mention that I went skiing in my letters, didn't I?
Because I did.  And in fact, my effervescent spirits and mad skiing skills prompted
these two military personel to ask to have their picture taken with me. 
I got them to take one with my camera too, as demonstrated above.

Here am I, in one of the Little Three Gorges,
that splits off the Yangtzee (Chang Jiang) River.


Bumming Picture
This is one of the many fireworks that were lit off
just outside Pei Zhuan's family's apartment.

(Sorry my hat's pulled way down... it was sooo cold.)
Anyway, of course we can't forget the Great Wall.
"See, I went to China..."
