Peace on Tiananmen Square

When you look at Tiananmen Square today, it's hard to believe it was the site of a brutal massacre. Like the mall in Washington D.C., it is a place where children play and people gather-- as long as they don't talk politics.

Hi Roz, I have no doubt that you are homesick, especially this time of the year. I had the pleasure of spending a week in your home town last week, and the colors were just beginning to change. You do live in a very beautiful area, but still, I think I would rather experience what you are experiencing

What does tomorrow mean? It is 5:30 pm here, but at home it’s 5:00 in the morning. I leave Weihai tomorrow and make a stop in Beijing. ...
