Adonal Foyle is making a travel blog for the Orlando Sentinel.
"It's (also) an interesting blend of modernization (growth) with traditionalism (people riding bicycles, scooters in streets, some small shops, people practicing tai chi). It's pretty incredible. There is an incredible juxtaposition between the two. Somehow they have been able to experience modernization and yet still kept a pretty tight lid on the culture and still hold on to their cultural experiences, too. It's a pretty amazing place."

I think that as China advances more, it will become more and more evident what the differences between us will be, now that the technology barrir will have been broken down.
He also mentions how they spent a long plane ride (18 hours) together, and how it helped them come closer as a team. All in all, a short but sweet read. Just click on the image to see.
Reminder: Wake up at 8:00 AM EST/5:00AM PST to watch Adonal Versus Yao! I've been getting pupmed to see a rematch of this for so long, it's rediculous. Recap of this, yesterdays, and Saturdays game along with video highlights to come!!!!
