I’m now in Toledo, OH about 8 hours from Philly
To be continued… : )
Here are just a few snapshots from the last couple days.
Mr Chen (on the right) from the tooling shop treated Bruce and I to lunch. It was a very simple meal and more typical for the average person in Shenzhen. I haven’t seen ginger beef or sweet and sour chicken once in China!
I head home tomorrow. Can’t wait to get back!
I went to Idaho this weekend with some good friends from Olds. It was a fun time, with Mitch providing the entertainment.
And now, (drum roll please) introducing Captain…
Well, we just jumped one of the last hurdles to get these parts into production. The poles slide through the hangars now!
Just got this video from China.
Joe and I went climbing last Sunday. On the way there we passed a point of interest. ‘The Three Sisters’ are famous mountains in Banff. I am not sure but I think they are named after 3 pioneers who ran a bed and breakfast in this area back around the turn of the century.
I went to Tianammen Square one night and then to the night markets. This square is where the large military parades take place. It is a huge, wide open area with the forbidden city (where China’s emporer used to live) on one side and Mao’s mausoleum (apparently Mao has been pickled against his wishes and could be viewed here at one time) on the other.
I like this photo. A single, unarmed, unknown man (his name is unknown!!!) had the courage to face down a column of tanks and bring them to a halt in the square. He had to have known that it meant certain death. No one really knows what happenned to him. At least 800 other students were killed in the 89′ uprising.
