1. It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Sorry. I’ve been out enjoying Beijing, people-watching at Hong Kong Disney (and riding Space Mountain for the first time in my life), working hard on the run-up to launch at work, which releases to the public a week from tomorrow, and gallivanting around with Matt, who came to visit me and ended up cleaning my bathroom. I have many photos to upload and stories to tell, and I’ll try to get around to it as soon as I can, although, since my brother, J., arrives tomorrow, it may be another while yet.

2. It’s been an entire year since I finished writing my thesis. It was on Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, one of the most incredible books ever written. Read it, if you haven’t, in memory of the hours I spent writing about it–or just read it because it’s truly wonderful. Still, I can’t believe it’s been a year.

beautiful photos of Yunnan! i’m off for a 20 day trip there tomorrow. It’s a shame you didn’t get up to Tiger Leaping Gorge/Shangrila…

If I’d had 20 days I would have! Sadly it was more like four and a half…. Hope you’re enjoying your trip.

I totally stumbled across this page by accident while looking at photos on flickr.

I love your food photos – they are getting me pumped for a trip to China in February. My bf is in Wenzhou for the next 9 months so I’m going to visit.

I saw your comment about Italo Calvino and I love him and I love that book. That is so awesome that you did your thesis on one of his books!!
