finally managed to connect from china!

I'm perched in a basement internet cafe in Xi'an, city of the terracotta warriors. At last, I managed to connect to blogger.com! Four internet cafes over the past week failed me, but perhaps it was due to the trans-pacific cable breakage from the Taiwan earthquake.

Out of the hundred youngsters in this room, surprisingly few are playing World of Warcraft (none that I could see). Most are watching videos, playing a multiplayer breakdancing game, or webcam chatting, or combinations of the three.

Finally can write down blog posts instead of caching them in my memory!

Hey, I've actually been to Xi'an! Hope your trip there was better than mine. ;) Though I met some great friends, and loved seeing the terracotta army.

Can't connect to blogger.com? Probably GFW in action.
