China Daily, the English language publication of the government here, published profiles of four or five Americans in China today as a 4th of July package — “Happy Birthday America.”

I was one of them. I knew it was coming but was shocked to see
this picture running almost half a page.

Happy 4th everyone.

    Hi Alan,

    I enjoyed your article in the Wall Street Journal today and wondered if you might be interested in a blog written by my friend Sue when she was teaching in Xi’an last year:

    There are also a few panoramic images of China on the main part of the site which might be of interest.

    Alan – I love this picture of you. Can you get a copy of the original? You look so handsome and it would be nice for you to have it to hang up (or I’ll have one to hang up?)
    You Rock!
