Happy early Cinco de Mayo everyone.
The 5th of May brings us about 1 week before the 12th of May, the day of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. As part of a week-long remembrance campaign, here is the first of an exclusive 2 part mini series honoring the victims of the earthquake.
Courtesy of Vincent Lee, this video depicts Jet's and the foundation's work in Sichuan immediately after the quake.
Here is part 1 of 2:
Jet is taking a quick detour to Beijing and Sichuan to attend the anniversary remembrance of the Sichuan Earthquake. Afterwards, it's on to New Orleans to continue shooting. More updates on the way.
Also, speaking of traveling, Jet sends his regards to everyone and hopes that everyone remains alert and healthy in the wake of the recent flu outbreak.
Jet thanks everyone for the kind wishes and would like to share a gift from his friend Vincent Lee with everyone here, along with this message:
"Thank you everyone for your wishes. For the past 46 years, I have been searching for the meaning of life. But now, I know that I can do my best to help our global family, our ONE family. Thank you for being with me here, and let's join hands to build a better future." |李連傑感謝大家的祝福，想在這裡與大家分享他朋友 Vincent Lee 送給他的一件禮物，以及這條信息:
Took us awhile to get to the statue, but unfortunately a cloud drifted in just as we got to the top. A game of hide and seek ensued as we tried to snap pictures of Jesus when his face peeked through gaps in the cloud, but results were pretty mixed. Cloud wins the day, but we'll bring faster cameras next time.

Before arriving on Corcovado Hill we stopped by a nearby mountain top to take in the view. Brazil's beauty was absolutely stunning. Jet and the crew at the top:
While standing in line on Corcovado Hill, we bought some soda from vendors. It was a hot day, and apparently bees nearby were as thirsty as we were. After Jet opened his coke a bee crawled in unnoticed. Jet takes a swig and rather unceremoniously spits out the coke along with the bee. In the end both were OK-Jet didn't get stung and the bee shrugged off the soda and flew away.
BBQ: We went to what was recommended as Rio's best BBQ. Jet wasn't very familiar with the different types of meat, so the poor guy in green ended up eating most of Jet's "try outs"
April 26, 2009; Brazil shoot finished. After a week in Rio de Janeiro, Jet has finished all scenes in Brazil, and is now prepping for the next shoot. Specific production details are hush hush, but over the next few days we'll share some highlights from our adventures in Rio.
