(This was sent to all my friends on August 23rd, 2005 … 2 days before I boarded the plane bound for Beijing)

What can I say? I’m a schmuck!

Pick the most difficult language on the planet where 5 different turns the same word into 5 wildly different things! Add3500 letters and what do you get? Yepp, you guessed it: The language I’m going to learn!

I’m moving to Beijing on Wednesday to study Chinese at a language institute. So yea, for the next year I’ll be on a rice and tea diet!


I guess you could say that I fell in love with the place, so I’m heading back again! It’s going to be FUN!!! So if you’re in the area send me a line and drop by! Seriously! he he he

Expect updates from time to time and if you need a translator or someone to introduce you to the Chinese market … I’m your man! … at least soon!

Catch you later!
