Off to the Orient



Okay, the photo is totally unrelated, but I had to put something up. Wellington is like the frozen circle of hell this evening, so I'm pleased to be going away!

I'm off to China (specifically Beijing) and (later) Singapore on Tuesday. Naturally, I'm going as an academic, rather than a photographer - so I can't really promise a wonderful porfolio of insightful photos. Infact, most of the time I will be 'on conference' in a most unphotographic way.

Anyway, it all promises to be interesting. Google Earth informs me that the hotel is 9km from Tiananmen Square, right next to the Olympic village. I might get some photos like this. Or, perhaps not.

Next update will be July 4th or thereabouts. Wish me luck!
