|Catch me if you can...Tad heads south!|

|Ni hao ma? (How are you?...literally "you good ?" )|
Since I have not yet hopped a sishingche (bike) I may be a bit harder to track. Alanna, currently winning the most emails in Tad's inbox competition, has been tracking me pretty well by doing Google searches on my locations and then sending me tips about avoiding snake dishes etc, for which I am extremely grateful. I might acidentally order braised snake instead of eggplant were it not for her dilligence. Xie Xie (thank-you).
So back to the heading south... I got out of the plane near Beijing, which seemed to be below freezing the whole time I was there. Which is an important detail because it helped me choose my next destination.
I had planned to head north to visit our exchange student(a 16 year old named Xu Pen who stayed with us last Spring) and his family. After many attempts to call him I finally got ahold of his mom, who spoke Chinese. I was able to make out something about Xu Peng.... America.... and a few hours later, indeed, I got an email from Xu Peng. He said he was sorry he did not tell me but he was back in the USA, in San Bernadino, California. So with the prospects of not really being able to communicate with his parents and not wanting to spend any more time than necessary at below freezing conditions, especially when I had basically been returned to a pre-literate state, I decided to start looking South.
