July photos

Finally some photos from Beijing in July. I haven't had access to blogspot for a few weeks now, following the riots in Xinjiang province. Every time there is violence in China, the government blocks websites like these to prevent people from sharing photos or videos from the events.

Our bird 'Guazi', terrorizing us both :)

He's a big fan of Steve Coogan

Tian'anmen Square on a misty morning. It had been foggy all morning and I decided to walk over to the square to see what it looks like. I couldn't see across.

Chen Yi, all ready to go on a trip to the beach

Our bird being silly.

He was actually stuck for a few seconds before shaking off his 'helmet'

I'm still not sure what he was looking for

We made dumplings at a friend's place one day. We four made over 100 of them! We used banana for stuffing as an experiment, and it tastes pretty good!

I'm back!

Whew, long time no posts.

Blogspot has been censored in China for many weeks now, and I haven't been able to find a way to access this site. Now, obviously, I have and I will post more messages here soon.

I am still in Beijing, but plan to move to another city soon. Our rent contract ends in August, so that'll be the time to move.

Watch for next updates!
