I'm Leaving...

On a Jet Plane...

Well, the time has come! I'm headed out of the office early to go home and pack for my business trip to Boca Raton and then off to China on Monday morning. Yippe! So, much to my hit count's dismay, there will probably be no postings here until I return from China in December.

I'm I excited? Hell yes, for the China trip that is. Boca Raton is in Florida, and I subscribe to the Homer Simpson school of Florida... Homer, "Awww Florida!? That's America's wang." And it so is. But, the mysterious orient awaits me afterwards. I'm headed to Beijing, Xi'an, and Shanghai.

If you're interested, here are some of the places I plan on going:

1) The Great Wall of China! (and the Great Wall Starbucks!)
2) The Forbidden City (and the Forbidden Starbucks!-which is somehow sad, so I'll skip it)
3) The Museum of the Terra Cotta Warriors!
4) The City Wall of Xi'an
5) The Bund
6) The Shanghai Maglev (aka - A HOVER TRAIN!)
7) The Jin Mao Tower (I'm actually staying here!)

I don't plan on blogging until I return. Content on EIE has been weak the last month or so. I continue to be in stunned disbelief at the ongoing implosion of the GOP's sad. So the vacation will do me some good, and trips overseas are always good for the awkward American in a foreign land story. I'll take notes and report back on my return. In the mean time, you all stay out of trouble.
