This is me, standing in a silk factory somewhere in China.
And for a little extra flavor, here are some of my pictures from this amazing and ancient land.
My entire trip to China was so visually rich I want to go back - with a much better camera.
Here are some wise Chinese sayings that I like:

To know the disease is half the cure.
To make enemies, talk; to make friends, listen.
To marry a woman for her beauty is like buying a house for its paint.
To really understand a man we must judge him in misfortune.
To worry about tomorrow is to be unhappy today.
Two persons cannot long be friends if they cannot forgive each other's little failings.
Unkindness destroys love.
We soon believe what we desire.
When stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always declares that it is his duty.
When guns speak it is too late to argue.
When the fox preaches, take care of your geese.
