Hello from Beijing!

Greetings from Beijing. Thought I would provide an update from behind the "invisible" curtain here in China. If you weren't aware, many sites are blocked by the government, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Blogger. Luckily, I have a way around that. ;-)

Hoping I don't get thrown out of the country for this posting...hahahaha...

I've been in Asia now since Aug. 30. Since my last posting (from Tokyo), I've made stops in Seoul and Taipei. Tomorrow morning, I'll be leaving for Shanghai and then heading to the last stop, Bangkok, on Sunday morning.

It has been such a fantastic trip. I'm traveling w/ representatives from many other MBA programs, as part of The MBA Tour Asia. In each city, there is a fair type event, where prospective students can go around to the various tables to learn more about the various MBA programs. I've had a great time w/ my travel mates - I already knew a few of the people from past travels, but have met a bunch of new people. I've also been able to meet up with quite a few of my former classmates during my studies at Thunderbird - some whom I haven't seen since we graduated in '05!

That's all for now...our Beijing event is this evening - so after that it will be 4 events down, and 2 to go!

Andy - Read your blog everyday! Love the posts - especially the food and travel ones. Keep making Purdue proud - maybe they will change Krannert to the Andy School of Management.
