Blogging will be extremely slender as the Peking Duck gets ready to travel out of Beijing for the Chinese New Year. I still don’t know where I’m going but I’m on several wait lists. (My travel agent promises me I’ll get on one of the flights.) Wherever I go, it will be somewhere south of Beijing, somewhere warm, somewhere without snow or icy winds that slice across your face. We are enjoying yet another cold wave here, so this trip can’t come too soon.
