So for the month of July I have been in Beijing -- I'm a teacher's assistant for the University of Washington and Beijing Film Academy summer program. Truth be told I still have a lot to learn about Chinese cinema -- and I'm so thankful that I got the chance to explore it even more...

Mark and I went to catch a Broadway show -- yes, in Xian! It was part of his birthday gift this year. He really loves performance of all sorts and we had a great time (although I did get a little frustrated with the taxi driver on the way since he took us 'for a ride' a bit -- actually I was mostly upset with myself given that I have been living here for years and didn't know where the theater was... next time... sigh) Can you guess which one it was?

For now a memory from India --
