I’m on hiatus from the blog, as you may have noticed.
To update: New Years Eve was like a punch in the face – good night but left me reeling; then I headed out to Shanghai, where I was a first-hand witness to the “third culture kids,” those students/kids who live abroad with their families and go to international school; Suzhou had beautiful gardens; two weeks of partying in Beijing ensued.
I want to develop all of these experiences in written form, but not here yet. I’m developing something on the DL – to be worked on in full between January and February…perhaps a series of vignettes?
Sorry I haven’t been here commenting about Google (does anyone think their potential pullout of China has anything to do with other issues, such as their highly publicized (in China) apology to the PRC Writer’s Union last week?) or other prominent issues. I’ve kind of been in my own world for a bit – focusing on friends before I head out of here.
