Too late for the gold? Oh, well.


I am going to China.
I am leaving this Sunday and will return sometime in the future.
I will visit my friend He is not Chinese, but his girlfriend is. They are very nice people.
Maybe I will see a panda...Maybe not.
I will eat a lot of Chinese food, except it will just be called food there.
I hope to take many pictures .
I want to stand on the great wall.
I will try to speak to people an gesticulate to make my point.
I want to get a copy of Chairman Mao's little red book in English or Braille.
There is nothing else. I am going to China and that is that.

Bunnies! If you meet any who are looking to escape China to marry a middle-classed American, send her my way.

We had a hot Chinese woman in our neighborhood who owned a liquor store, but before I could marry her she escaped America and went home.

I was in China.
I went and left last summer.
I didn't visit anyone but I saw a lot of Chinese people.
I saw all 4 pandas at the Beijing Zoo.
I ate their Chinese food, but I think NYC Chinese food is WAY better.
I took some pictures.
I stood at the Great Wall.
I can speak rudimentary Chinese with further explanations in sign language.
I have a red book by my bedside but it isn't by Mao.

I look forward to your ruminations on the difference between the Chinese and Japanese martial arts...

Carla said...

Not sure what your expectations are...but many a story you will bring home to be sure.

And I too went on a long trek to find Mao's little red book in English. Gift for a very good friend.
