Just got into Beijing from Korea. I'm staying with some Penn Law friends, Derek and Lance, until the end of the week. We're at the WenJin Hotel, Tsing Hua East Gate, just down the street from BLCU, the language school I went to back in 2003. Most of Beijing seems the same, except that all of the old 1.20 and 1.60 cabs have been retired and traffic is slightly more orderly. I guess the government decided to replace those 25 year old Citreons with brand new Hyundai Sonatas, charging 2.00/km, in anticipation of the Olympics. I also got a glimpse of the Olympic stadium (the birds nest) from the 4th ring. It's pretty impressive in person.

Heading out to Mix tonight with the other Penn guys - yes, it's still around apparently. Tomorrow I'm visiting Michelle and Andy after a quick massage.
