Mike Shecket Goes To China!


As usual, after I’ve had a blog for a while, it tends to become a chore instead of a diversion…especially when there’s a lot of monotonous steps involved turning cool and interesting photos and videos into something that can be seen online (cropping, resizing, file conversions, uploads…ugh).

Generally speaking, however, I have done the following things lately:

  • Seen the pandas in Chengdu and Great Buddha in Leshan
  • Climbed up and down a lot of stairs and went–that’s right–ice skating in Chongqing (actually, I think you can go ice skating other places in China…Beijing for sure…but it still blew my mind)
  • Arrived in Beijing, got set up in an apartment
  • Managed to figure out the neighborhood and the subway system
  • Found an Indian restaurant and took a walk around Beida (北大), also known as Peking University

Maybe I should have set my camera to take web-size photos (except I want the big ones for archival purposes), or maybe I should have bought a camera that makes videos that properly upload directly to YouTube (although again, I wanted to also be able to make DVD-quality video).

Meanwhile, I’m gearing up for the big kickoff of my test prep business for when I get back…my non-compete agreement is finally up as of about two weeks ago, and so I’m getting my website, craigslist postings and Google ads ready.

    Hi Mike, was wondering where you were. E-mail me when you get a chance, no hurry. Would like to talk about your business and please send me your website, postings, and Google ads info. 40 days till I arrive in China, Aug. 24.
