Unfortunately, I am unable to access Blogger/Blogspot from China, so it will be very difficult for me to post regularly while I am here. I was able to set up posting via email, so we'll see if/how that works out. My Internet connection here is terribly slow, which is a real shame because I was hoping I'd be able to post some pictures, but that would take forever on this connection and I'm not even sure how it would work posting those via email. Nevertheless, I will try to post about my experiences, especially those related to my travels to the medical school here. The orientation for that starts tomorrow, so hopefully I'll be able to offer some insight on that by the end of the week.
In the meantime, I don't think I've eaten a single item that I've actually recognized while I've been here. The next 4 weeks will definitely be an interesting experience!
