Gone to China

Junior and I have gone to China to join wife & sis in Beijing. We’re attending the wedding of two old workmates of my wife, a Swedish lady and a Chinese gentleman who met while working as guides in Stockholm city hall. After the festivities we’re taking the train to the groom’s home town of Luoyang in Henan.

I don’t know what kind of internet access I’ll have this time over in the People’s Republic, so blogging may be patchy up until 5 November. If nothing comes up here, then check my old site to which I may be able to post via e-mail from my handheld computer. And feel free to chat among yourselves in the comments section.
