The humorous, quotidian and more

For those interested in funnier moments of daily life in Beijing, as well as the deeper identity issues of a Chinese/Taiwanese-American returning to the country where her grandparents' families were separated by Mao's revolution, check out my flatmate's blog "Han Solo: Return to the Motherland." You can see pictures of me in a Beijing Bikini in 天安门 (Tian'anmen Square), pictures of our apartment, and a menu featuring "Pot-Braised Pig Fallopian Tube."

As Mercedes Sosa (whose triumphant 1982 concerts at Teatro Colòn upon returning from exile to Argentina give me goose bumps every time I listen) used to sing:

"lo cotidiano se vuelve màgico."
