Wow, I've been gone from here a while.
First, I was teaching my summer intensive course at my school; Teaching teenagers English through science. It was a fun course, if a bit too condensed; We had four weeks to do an eight-week course. The students all had a good time and didn't seem to mind the pace too much.

With that all over, my now wife and I had our wedding at the start of this month! We had a traditional Mongolian ceremony in her hometown. Meeting all of my new relatives was exciting as well as overwhelming. I really need to improve my Mongolian.
We also went out to Shangdu (Also known as Xanadu), the ancient capital founded by Kublai Khan (Genghis Khan's grandson). The place is impressive, even in ruins.
Last, we took a short trip to Beijing for some more sightseeing.

China's Golden Week starts next week. We'll go out to some of the monasteries in Qinghai. Looking forward to that.

I'm a NZ-born astrophysics graduate but I'm also interested in East Asian calligraphy and painting. I'm currently teaching English here in Inner Mongolia.
I want to become much better at calligraphy so I'm happy to receive any and all comments and feedback.
