Apologies for the delay

We’ve made it to Vietnam and out from under the oppressive Chinese internet censorship regime (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_censorship_in_the_People%27s_Republic_of_China). At first we thought the choice of blog name was the cause of the problem, but apparently the censorship applies to all WordPress blog sites. We will try to fill in the gaps retroactively with some of our impressions of China, and we hope that other governments are either less oppressive or less tech savvy.

  1. My mother visited China in 1976, right after they opened it up to the West. She was on the third tour group that was allowed to visit. Her biggest memory was bicycles, bicycles, bicycles.

    Any of those left? Post more pix!

    1. In 1989, I would have said the same thing. Even by 1992 bicycles dominated the streetscapes of China. Not so much anymore. The personal car (and the motor scooter) have taken over, relegating the bicycle to the poor man’s vehicle or a vehicle of last resort.
