click photo to view video I’ve arranged some of my photos from my 5-day Chicago trip during summer 2011 into a Shockwave flash video. My Chicago sojourn was part of my fast 3-week trip to the USA, my first return since moving to China in 2006. You can also view it as a PowerPoint presentation on Slideshare.net. You can see my travel presentations, including my photos from Tibet, Nepal, and India, on the Travel page.

Ego store – one-eyed holiday creatures It was a rare sunny Saturday afternoon, and an even rarer free day. I took my camera to the Chunxi Road shopping area for a glimpse of the holiday insanity. Christmas decorations are everywhere, even though it isn’t a Chinese holiday, but the shopping frenzy is making great inroads into the Chinese urban lifestyle. After lunch at a local food court, I had a hot chocolate at Starbucks, then went to a pet store to buy a dog coat for my, um, dog. Some new rawhide bones too. I bought some food, then went home to spend the rest of the weekend napping and watching movies on DVD. Merry, merry. Dior tree Lollipops and candied fruit Louis Vuitton display
