I'm back from the Middle Kingdom. I've got a boatload of e-mail and TiVo to catch up on, as well as trying to recuperate from SARS (yes, that's hyperbole).

A bit too much went on in China to really write a lot about--I saw Tienanmen Square, the Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven. I climbed the Great Wall (Ba Da Ling section), and saw the Terra Cotta Warriors in Xian. I ate entirely too many eggs for my poor cholesterol level, but they sure were tasty.

Jerry has the digital camera at the moment, and I'll probably have digital pics of everything we went through some time soon. One of the members of our Beijing tour took pictures of everything, including each individual plate of food that we consumed. I'm hoping he'll post those sometime soon.

Otherwise, I'm jetlagged and ready for bed.

[User Picture]I talked to Patty after I got back, and she said that she went in May, and it was still really cold. When you go, you can either bring a bunch of warm clothes (at the very least bring something to protect you from the biting wind), or you can pick up a bunch of cheapie things (scarves, pashminas, gloves, etc) on the mountain itself from the streetside vendors. One of the other people on the tour got a hat, gloves and scarf combo for about $.25 American...
