When I Get Bored With Flying Airplanes

I may try flying a board. I have to say that this looks extremely dangerous but even more extremely fun.

Getting on a "real" airplane now for the 14-hour haul to Beijing. For a reminder of Beijing's and China's most unignorable challenge, see this report and these recent shots, from Sinocism and Business Insider.


I will try to get a few dispatches composed en route. If you're going to either the Beijing or the Shanghai literary festivals this next week, see you there.
