As a Westerner in China, I always feel that all eyes are on me, mostly in curiousity. Last night, in the night market, two young ladies asked if they could take their picture with me — here’s me taking a picture of one’s cell phone take a picture of us which is, I suppose, very meta.
Tomorrow morning, at 0400, we’re headed to the airport and, from there, to Beijing for the start of three weeks of vacation in China. I’ll be posting pictures as possible — from memory, I think I can get to Tumblr from behind the Great Wall and those posts get simulcast to Facebook.
tl;dr — if you don’t hear from me until mid August, it’s OK. I’m on vacation.
