Dre J.’s Travel Diary

Friday, 25 Sep 2009

Location: Beijing, China

MapOh and one last thing, both proxy site that I was using to get onto facebook have been blocked, so until I find another one I am blacked out as far as facebook goes, so leave me messages on here, skype me, or hit me on aim. drejuarez is my screen name for all. This prolly has to do with China's 60th anniversary of Communism next Thursday. They have been really tightening their grip on everything and anything. Its now very common to see cops in full gear walking the streets, ie. helmet, bullet proof vest, shotguns, dogs...the whole yards. They don't want anything bad to happen before this celebration. They have been practicing and rehearsing for the parade for over two years. The whole city is clean, there are huge red 60th Anniversary signs everywhere you look. They have shut down the city on a number of occasions for rehearsals since i'v been here. The last one was last week. But ya, the point is it might be impossible to get on until after the week long holiday, which won't be until the end of next week. I'll still be in Sichuan Providence on a week long field trip anyways so that doesn't matter much. But like I said, I'll still be on here to fill you all in, and you can reach me on aim or skype. Zaijian!
