I’ve been teaching English in China and just got back a few months ago. Unfortunately I fell several times, once getting off a Delta jet in Atlanta and rupturing my main quad in my leg, then again here in Austin, breaking my tibia in two places. Stayed in St. David’s hospital two weeks, now I am recovering in a rehab. X-rays now show the tip of my femur is flat, instead of road, so at least I know why I’ve been falling so much.
Well, I must go on, so I will be posting articles and photos here. I am working on a new e book on how to get a great teaching job in China as I did.

Cheap Adventures Off The Beaten Track. My new e-book will soon be published at Smashwords.
My e-book, Hunting Elephants In China: Cheap Adventures Off The Beaten Track, will be published through Smashwords. Here is the title page and a few pics. I will have a free chapter available to read soon.
I was shaken and a little spooked when I found this scene to photograph. We had been chased by a Chinese army tank on the beach and they took all our cameras. When we got them back (no photographing on military outposts–but I’m back! 🙂 ) we hired a driver to take us to the end of Naozhou Dao (Dao means island). Here we also found and old, decaying monastery with two old Chinese men looking quite destitute.
I have more posts to come on this part of my new book, Shooting Elephants In Shanghai.
