The Middle Kingdom may never be the same

I’m off on an adventure tomorrow as I take flight on a 12 day business trip to China.

I am very fortunate to have a gig where I get to travel every now and then… not too much but just enough to scratch my itch.Ā  Too much travel would mean too much time away from the kids, and that would suck.

Provided there aren’t any serious problems with access to my site, I’ll be posting updates from Beijing – as time allows. This is, after all, a business trip and the schedule is pretty packed.

I am all a-twitter as a school kid thinking that in just a short while, I will be experiencing the sights and sounds of a world that is purportedly much different from my own. The Great Wall, The Forbidden City, the Olympic facilities and all of the other sights and sounds will be fascinating!

I’ll post a short entry in Toronto during our 2 hour layover at Pearson, and then the next time you’ll see something scribbled in this space, I will be in the Middle Kingdom!

Hmmm…. I wonder what the Chinese will think of a bald, goateed white guy walking around in a Leaf sweater?

    Careful Trashy,

    Wearing Leaf’s apparel in China may bring you to the attention of the Chinese authorities. They may see it as a symbol of one’s membership in a ‘cult’ (i.e. a poor, loyal, brainwashed, and hopelessly optimistic soul in search of a saviour who will bring to thee a silver chalice)! Not known for their tolerance in this area they may seek repress your mode of expression.

    Otherwise, hope you enjoy all the sights and sounds that the ‘middle kingdom’ has to offer.

    Jeez it’s not like they don’t know about the rest of the world.

    and not because of the goatee, the bald or the white.
