Ni hao! In less than a week, I’m off to China for work for the fourth time in a year. Though I suspect the economic downturn will curb my future travel some, I still expect another couple trips in the coming year. So that I might navigate a little better when I’m over there, I’ve been taking some classes in Mandarin Chinese. Only five lessons in, I’m really only set if someone happens to ask my name or the date, but hopefully the class has laid the groundwork so I can learn a bunch while I’m there.

I’ve been emailing some with my friend who raised our Thanksgiving turkey last year. I guess it’s time to order poults for this year, which means it’s high time I finish writing up last year’s experience.

[ Hopefully, posting the link will motivate me to finish the story. In the meantime, expect some missing images and an incomplete story. ]
