I’m going back to China over winter vacation. I’ll fly out unreasonably early on Monday the 27th, arrive in Beijing on the night of the 28th – stupid time changes – and spend the next couple of weeks travelling around, mostly in Sichuan.
I’d promise near-realtime blog updates from the trip, but I’ve made similar promises before and failed consistently, so perhaps it’ll be best to imply strongly – without actually saying explicitly – that I’ll be dispatching bulletins and perhaps pictures from rural Sichuan.
At any rate, a merry Christmas and happy holiday season to all of my readers, unless you voted for Bush.
And on an unrelated note, here’s a scan of an article I wrote with Kaiser Kuo about fake Harry Potter sequels in China.
