Internet Black Hole
I’ve been in China (Hong Kong doesn’t count) for about 4 days so far and have yet to touch a computer that has antivirus on it. They are all full of keyloggers and trojans — many of the same ones on several computers. But I set up this account so that when my account gets hijacked over here, it won’t be a big deal. The last city we were in (Guang Zhou) had tons of spyware and very slow Internet. This city (Yang Zhou, I think), at least has fast Internet.
But other than that, the country is very cool. I’ll write a bunch more later about what we’ve done in the last few days, but for now I need to get cleaned up and go out for dinner (aka beer). I might not be able to post for a few more days, depending on our schedule, but I’ll try to get some pictures online at some point.

you basically won’t see anti-virus or anti-spyware again until you reach Norway. Hope you don’t have to do any banking online.Speaking of lovely safety measures, the last time I tried to post, blogspot found it necessary to post my password. ?? this durn blogsite!
