Today, I had my first important assignment in U.S.-China relations.  Last week, Ambassador Li of China came to our school to give several lectures and talks on Chinese foreign policy.  At the end of the week, he needed a ride to Napa.  I was chosen to drive him and his wife.  Having gotten them there safely, they invited me to taste wine with them at their friends' vineyard and at the wineries Opus One and Quintessa.  I consider it my greatest diplomatic victory to date.  Next step, foreign service.
