transmitting from the far east

redeye from buenos aires wednesday night.
3 hours of sleep in sf on thursday night.
redeye to beijing to this point right now.
i am jello, tofu, melting in front of the computer.

but no complaints here! it's nice to be on a new continent.

the language thing here is quite a barrier. at least in other countries, i recognized the letters. here it's all in chinese. you know that saying, 'it's like they're speaking in chinese'? well, here they are.
it's sort of odd though, out of habit from the past 9 months, when i'm confused or someone asks me a question, i automatically respond in spanish. i did that a couple of times with the cab driver. from now on, i'm speaking 'pointenese'.

no pics today, i forgot my camera, but i do got a couple of shots of mao and tianammen square. look for it tomorrow.

the funny thing about my cab ride was that the driver asked me, Dónde está Ché Pelotas?
