China Journal: Letters From the Flip Side Episode 4

Events of the Spring and Summer of 2008 were great and terrible
Jet Li One Foundation Charity Celebrity F1 Race in Shanghai May 2008
Featured in the largest newspaper in the province, as editor/writer/lecturer
Some of my students waiting for the Olympic torch to run through Hangzhou
I wasn’t allowed anywhere near the West Lake to see the torch, so my students took photos for me
Olympic Torch running around the West Lake area, security was very tight to say the least
Tsinghua University
Olympic Stadium Bird’s Nest month before the Olympics
Highway sign for Beijing Olympics Village
Emperor’s Throne Forbidden City 2008
Great Wall stretching into the distance. The haze disappeared during the Olympics because factories closed
Summer Palace

The man across from our building has a rooftop garden. If you live on top floor you can claim the space.
The writer liked talking to Hong and I, I did a total of three interviews
The Tao Cafe
The Tao Cafe. I took this photo from a taxi on the way to the magazine. I’d tried several times to get a good photo from inside the careening cab. I saw the name as good luck on the way across town
