LSU Summer in China
May 30 – July 1, 2001
A log of my adventures, observations, and curiosities.
Transcribed from my handwritten journal I wrote along the way. Edited for clarity and content.
[Braketed italics] indicate thoughts added after the initial writing.
Note that the level of detail from day-to-day varies due to several factors, including my interest in that day’s events and how tired I was at the time of writing.
This page makes some use of Chinese characters. You must have Chinese fonts installed on your computer if you wish to view them properly.
