This blog will chart my progress in learning about the history, language, people and contemporary culture of China. Under the auspices of the Confucius Institute at Pace University I traveled to China with several faculty colleagues in summer '11. I began this blog to discuss my preparations for the trip and the China Seminar at Pace. The Seminar ended in fall 2011, but my curiosity about China continues.

People and Pandas
Got this from Andrew Revkin's tweet:
"China moves from human census--1.33 billion--to panda census--1596--at last count."
