We have discovered that the grocery store around the corner from the apartment is great. They have almost everything we could want (but sadly no cheese or cereal). It seems that all the produce is cheaper than Wal-mart (and a whole lot closer). I guess we don't need to stock the fridge every week like I thought we would.

I have also been informed that Yahoo photos will be shutting down in September. I have been told to move my photos to another site. I decided to use Shutterfly and see how it goes. It's looking pretty good after a few minutes of playing around and figuring out how to share all my photos with friends and family. It's definitely working better than Yahoo ever did (for some reason it started screwing up a few months back, but only for me--Yahoo China worked fine for Jia, and the US site worked fine for my parents; I guess it just didn't want to upload photos to a US server from China). Anyway, Shutterfly is going well--I'll email friends and family soon when I get more photos posted and find my card reader so I can upload my new vacation photos.

I came across your blog when I ran a Google search on Tsinghua. I am actually thinking about teaching there and was wondering how it was for you. I read an entry or two of yours and it sounds like you had some problems. I would love to hear what you have to say. You can contact me at
