Back From China

Thanks to all of you for bearing with me. I’m surprised you’re still checking in to see if I’d posted any new blog entries. I can’t blame you for thinking I had journeyed into the unknown, like Marco Polo. Possibly I’d return in twenty, thirty years. Maybe never.

Well, I’m back. And I owe an apology. I promised to post blogs from China. I meant to. Really. However, Robert Burns said it best in his poem, “To A Mouse.”

The best laid schemes of mice and men/Gang aft agley.

Every day in China was full of adventure. By the time Doris and I came back to our various rooms, we were exhausted. I didn’t have enough energy to write my name.

However, I didn’t fail completely. I took plenty of pictures. I’ve made several of them into a slide show video using iMovie. I even added music from traditional Chinese music of the T’ang Dynasty. You can find the video at http://gallery.me.com/hulagu/100000. Let me know if you like it.

I’ll also be posting blogs about my Chinese adventures to help you understand the photos.

One more thing I want to tell you. Doris and I arrived home on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, after a long, long flight from Beijing. Our Thanksgiving Dinner consisted of a can of chicken soup. Then we went back to bed. Not much of a Thanksgiving. We’ll make up for that at Christmas time.
