"Time is going by really really really slow."

Too funny not to post.

A cop too, man what an idiot. I love the weather girl snorting at the end.

Great Wall

So a few coworkers and I went to the Great Wall on Sunday and it was pretty spectacular. The crowds were intense and I learned that I get almost no respect from people pushing through the masses.

We walked from the bottom (entrance) of the Wall to the highest point which as Mao Zedong said is the true mark of manhood, and damn, I am looking pretty manly.

For some reason (still a mystery to me) there were a number of bears at the exit of the Wall. It gave the experience a real theme park feel.

The roller coaster down the mountain helped drive this feeling home.

The views were amazing though even if it was a bit cloudy and rained part of the time. Also, this was the first outing with my new camera (Nikon D40) and it held up pretty well.

All of my photos are here

First Post

If you are looking for this guy:

You are in the wrong place (please leave immediately).
If you are looking for a guy that kind of looks like this:

You are getting closer (God, do I really look like that?).
Anyway, this is my first blog post. I am in Beijing right now and I imagine this will be a good way for people to keep up to date with me. People that are not in Beijing right now that is.
I will put some pictures up when I get around to taking them. I am off to the Great Wall with some coworkers tomorrow so that should provide ample opportunities.
If you want to see some photos of previous trips to Beijing (other stuff too), look here
