I’d like to welcome myself back to the blogosphere (god, I hate that term) after a three-week hiatus in which the Chinese government saw fit to block access to my blog, preventing me from posting. If you want to ask why I have been banned in China, please direct your inquiries to Hu Jintao himself. Now that I am back in safe ground (well sorta…Hong Kong), I can begin to blog retroactively about my adventures on the mainland and on my new journies interning in the Big HK. I have already started blogging (see my last handful of posts dating back to late May) about the Shantou University tour of Pippin to Guangzhou and will continue to fill in the pieces from the last three weeks. Check back here to read about more adventures abroad!
