In America

I spent the fall and winter of 2013 in Shenzhen, China living with my sister who moved there to work. Had a chance to visit new places like Beihai in Guangxi on the ocean (nice old town, beaches were disappointing, especially when the hurricane from the Philippines hit) and Hangzhou (beautiful West Lake and the old grand canal) at the National Day holiday. And visited some old places like Beijing, Hong Kong, Macau, and Wuhan. And I had my sabbatical leave so I was able to complete my book on the increasing use of unmanned aerial vehicles i.e. drones.

May return to China this summer and spend time in Hefei, Anhui; not far from Huang Shan/Yellow Mountain.
