it’s 6am. the sun is out and about for one hour and outside it’s already 30°c. down in the park i can see a bunch of old timers doing tai chi or playing badminton. and on the streets, streams of bikes and scooters ride in every direction.

yesterday she said that sometimes it’s still hard to believe we are in china. sometimes it’s not. :)

    Just found out about you and your site quite by accident. I’m writing from Atlanta, GA and found your postings of interest. I was fortunate to have been able to travel internationally growing up since my Dad was in the US military (Green Beret). I am now inspired to look for ways to expose my children to the great big wonderful world and I think your postcrossing site would be an excellent way to spark an interest outside their small corner of the world.
    Thank you for the inspiration!
