From China

Dear friends,
I'm currently in Shanghai, China. The wearher here is freezing compared to the tropics of Thailand. Sporting a light jacket, I can feel the wind rushing up against my body. Must buy a sweater.

Its hard to properly pack for such varying climates, especially when you try to pack as light as possible--and for me, considering all my equipment, packing light is 5 bags or less.

To my surprise (well maybe I should've expected), blogs and Facebook is blocked here in China. I'm currently writing from my Blackberry. I hope the internet cops don't catch me.

I will be here for the next twenty four hours--upon which I will fly to Taiwan for a quick shoot, then head back to China to film a story on the earthquake affected areas from last years events.

I hope this message finds you well. I'm currently in a cab trying to navigate mysef thru Shanghai on one of my days off. And once again, please feel free to add me to Facebook if you'd like to follow my progress.

Talk soon!
Ron

Ok, Ron, I know this is hard work and boo hoo you don't have the right clothes ... but I'll trade places with you! (I know, we've already talked about this in another post.) I've read and heard (well, who hasn't!) that China is a real treat for the senses. I can't wait to see some of what you capture on film, including of the earthquake site. Are you talking about that area where that school collapsed? Good luck, and take care.

Enjoy your time in Shanghai, Ron. Looking forward to the blog photo when you have the access (to your own blog) back!
