Ministry of Magic: An American Girl in China, cont.

Hope you had and are having a great Memorial Day!

As for us, the American kids over here in Beijing, we headed Memorial Day to dinner at the closest thing we could find to a traditional Memorial Day feast–Outback Steakhouse.  There are two in Beijing.  We had a great time, and it again was a much needed slice of home, especially being away during a holiday.

In the morning, we had class with Prof. Guo on intellectual property, and will have him again today.  He’s 84.  He moves a little slow, but his brain is razor sharp, and he’s been one of the best professors yet we’ve had here at Remnin.  Awesome!

Also on the docket for today is a visit to the Ministry of Commerce (henceforth, I have renamed the Ministry of Magic, because commerce to me is magic, in toto).  Of course, I’ll let you know how it goes.  I’m also trying to get photos up on this site, but my iPhone isn’t talking to my PC (can’t we all just get along)?  I’ll keep working on that. 

In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your holidays, and please think of those who fought so hard for all the freedom and wonderful things we enjoy in our country that you just can’t get elsewhere.
