With silly season now drawing to a close, regular programming should resume here shortly. Hope you’ve had a meaningful Christmas and New Year season, my friends! My fondest wishes for your 2014.





Birds in Cages.

So I’m very conflicted about this one. On the one hand, I am very much of the belief that birds should not be caged. On the other hand, keeping birds has a long history here and a great escape from the bustle of modern life. In any case, I really enjoyed stumbling upon this park and would highly recommend others at least explore it.

So *somebody* told me I was too embarrassing to dance with in the park. I respectfully agree to disagree. Maybe.

Deng’s Legacy
It’s been a handful of years since I last visited Shenzhen and my previous impression of it was not so fond. This time, however, had me thoroughly impressed. It’s a megapolis like the other tier-1 Chinese cities, but unlike the other major Chinese cities, Shenzhen really has only come to significance in the last 30 years following Deng Xiaoping’s economic reforms. What a legacy he’s left.
