If you would be a
real seeker after truth,
it is necessary that
at least once in your life
you doubt, as far as possible, all things.
Rene Descartes (1596 - 1650)

Beijing, China,
November 16 - 30, 1999

Chinese friends:

We journey not only to get to know others, but also that others get to know us. My host family is at the top of this montage.

  • They transported, translated, toured.
  • They opened their lives to me that I get to know them, and Beijing. Meals were singular occasions for discussions and socializing.
  • They, and other friends, were ready and willing accomplices to my experiencing the cuisines of China.
  • They were academics, managers, even a retired diplomat who conversed with me in French. I even meet the (Minneapolis) Director of St. Thomas' International Management Program in Beijing!

Each new friend has a special place, special memory for me.
Unfortunately, here the digital photography seemed at its worst.
