Adding this new category to my blog, I'm starting the journey towards a greater understanding of China and things Chinese. I've started (sorta) by getting into an argument about the war in Iraq with a cat who runs a site called PekingDuck.org, but there's a lot more to learn. A lifetime to be sure...

So my first stop is to check out LonelyPlanet.com and see what they have to say there. Since I'm a blogger, and I understand that China has only one ISP, it may be difficult to blog from Beijing. We'll see.

Looking forward to the China intel. I need to catch up to. I'm sure you'll take us some interesting places.

(Off to check out PekingDuck.org!)

Get Fairbank's "China: A New History". It may not help you in the day-to-day hip new China, but it is perhaps the most concise history of China in a broad sweep. Your eyes will see more with it under your belt.
I look forward to your observations.
