The Simpsons Are Going to China!

Or maybe it was Japan. I don’t think the Simpsons ever went to China. They went to Japan. I’m the one who is going to China. I’m leaving this Friday and I’m away until the 19th of December. Not sure how good the internet access is, my experience so far is that the connections to and from the country is rather crappy, peaking at about 50KBps with an average of 500 bytes or so per second. I don’t think I have any GPRS roaming there either, so don’t expect that many updates while I’m gone.

I will be bringing my camera, though, so hopefully I’ll have some pictures to show you when I get home. Gotta see the Wall and the Hong Kong skyline while I’m there, of course.

Could be fun.
