I just returned from a 12-day trip to China. Imagine my frustration when I tried to access my blogs from there on the first night in the hotel room. All Blogger and Wordpress blogs are blocked in China, but most others don't seem to be. I had planned to post daily updates of our adventures. It was hard not being able to post. I guess the blogs had become part of my normal routine. I'll make a few posts in the next couple of days about the China experiences, but it's just not the same as doing it from there in real-time.
