What is this Meetup Group good for anyway? Beyond being a great place to make new friends and practice Mandarin, It was because of this group I was able to be in contact with Xu Keqian.? From that great connection I was able to visit the photojournalism school at Nanjing Normal University during my Spring Break last week.? I just wanted to say how wonderful this experience was for me personally, and how many doors it will open for future collaborations between my students and the students in Nanjing.? I hope everyone involved in this group finds a time that you can have the same feeling that I have been enjoying for the past two weeks.

If you would like to read the report of my visit to Nanjing, according to those in Nanjing, you can visit this link:

Also, I had about a day and half for taking photos during my trip (not as much as I had wished) and have some new photos from Beijing, Shanghai, and Suzhou on my blog

Thank you everyone for being part of this group. Although I'm far away from you in Greensboro it has often given me more than ample reason to get down the road to Raliegh for Meetup events.
