Well, to start out, this blog is going to be more for me than it is for you. It’s my first blog, and I’m just figuring out how to use WordPress; I’m practicing my Chinese (I might get professional translators in here eventually); Furthermore, after four years of living in China, I’m finally starting to figure out what I really think of the place. Maybe I’m slow, or maybe I just don’t fall for first impressions.
Anyway, this blog is going to be about the country where I’m from, and the country where I am now. Canada, the great white north – source of open space, vast resources and sink for consumables – and China, the middle Kingdom, one of the very seats of civilization rising again from a hundred year glitch in its rather amazing history.
Over the next few postings, I’ll establish the major topics I’d like to cover and investigate here – but mostly they’ll be about energy, the environment and culture – and how these two very different countries can help each other get out of the holes that they, in part, have helped each other dig.
