Today--and yesterday, and tomorrow are travel. I left my house at 4 am and now it is almost 11pm. Over thirty hours of travel. I slept on every leg and also in the Beijing airport. Everything was very familiar--airport behavior, plane behavior-- so my lack of Chinese not much of a problem today. Plus I was sleeping most of the time. I did wake up and open the shade at one point and was able to see Siberia from the plane. We flew over the arctic and down. Two passengers and a flight attendant started screaming at me, so i lowered the shade, but it was cool.Tomorrow I fly to Yunming, and then driven to Binchuan, where I will stay for one week to teach. More later.
