Made it back to Beijing on Tuesday of this week after about ten days back in California. Its been interesting moving between the two locations over the last couple of weeks mainly because it was relatively seamless to get back into the flow of things in SF/Mountain View and then into a routine when I got back to Beijing a couple days ago. It was good to see Kia and everyone back home but I have to admit I was aching for some pork buns by the time I got back on the plane to China. Seriously, even if they have cardboard in them they are scary delicious.
My sister sent me a box of books and winter coats - I think - and it is sitting at a post office somewhere so that will be my adventure for the weekend.
Kia and I are trying to pin down some travel plans for this fall while she is in Asia. Lots of things we want to see and do.
What else? Made a trip to Amoeba (aka the music store with the best return policy of all time) before I left San Francisco and scooped up some new cds. Got the re-release of Ruff Draft and the new Beastie Boys album (damn, their website is pretty sweet) both are pretty much awesome in completely different ways.
Its been beautiful in Beijing the last couple days, clear skies and sunshine, 90 degrees.
Hope everyone is well,
