No Internet at home. My Golden Week 2007. Da Shan.

The wife is telling me that it will be 25 days before I  can get the Internet at home.  I am trying to find a way to get it sooner, but till I have the net at home, my blogging will be less frequent.

It will be Tony’s first Golden Week; he being only 36 days old today.  So I won’t be doing much outside of being with him.

I see, from my 21st floor view, that the Kempenski building has a huge video screen in operation.

Thousands of dead little insects piled on the flood lamps on the school deck.

Da Shan, currently the most famous Canadian in China, will be coming to our school October 6 at 1400 if you are interested. 

Passing accident scenes is a daily occurrence when one lives in Wuxi.  The usual scenario involves a car and a bus.  One night last week, I saw one such accident aftermath and then another about half a block later.  The first accident the car driver was clearly at fault as the bus was rear-ended.  The second accident looked to be the result of the bus cutting off the car.  Two accidents so close together was a first for me.  I wonder if I had defied the odds by not having seen two so close together in the three years I have lived here.

    Ooh, can you do me a favor?
     
    In a polite and thoughtful manner, can you ask Mr. Roswell (or perhaps Mr. Da?) why he is a shill for the Chinese government and "traditional Chinese values" (i.e., Communist government values) rather than trying to use his position of visibility and power to effect positive change for the country?  Also, ask him whether he is aware that this is a common point of view among ex-pats, and what he thinks of that?  I’m extremely curious about both those questions.
     
    (In an unrelated note, I’m curious what your sense of the people’s reaction to the demonstrations in Burma and subsequent military response is.  I look forward to a blog post on that when you get an opportunity.  For that matter, I do hope that you have had a chance to follow that story from work or from a 网吧 even if you don’t have the internet at home.)
