bought 300 American movies for about $15 :))

New Blog

Wow I have not been here forever! Just making a test run to see if I want to use this site during my summer travels here in Asia. In only a few short weeks I will be on yet another 2 month university holiday! Unbelievable!

hhhmmmm,,,,wow this site looks pretty cool! I have actually only used it for status updates in the past! Here is a pic of one of my first trips in China! Taken right down in our very own Pinyao, old city of my Shanxi Province. Not to be confused with Shannxi, location of Xian and the famous Terra Cotta Warriors. That province is about 6 or 8 hours south of me and I hope to swing thru there on my way to Tibet this summer!
