News, Oddities, and Links: 
The Great Wheel of China. Beijing plans on building the worlds biggest ferris wheel. It should be bigger than both the London Eye and the Singapore Flyer. They have always liked big things in China and the Beijing Great Wheel is a tip of the hat to the same old glory days of the Great Wall. 

I have felt myself beaconed to China nearly continuously for the years of 2005-07. I cannot explain this attraction. I just love this country, which is my favorite in the world. you can walk down any street in China and find things to laugh about the entire time. A great country for walking and hitchhiking!
