STATUS: ON HIATUS (5/8/12)
Location: Beijing, China
I get the prestigious spot at the bottom of the blog for my intro. My name's David, and at the moment, I am studying in Beijing!
The DUtM project was actually inspired by my crazy travel plans this summer--in fact, I'm only going to be in China for another week, and then I'll be spending half a month in Mongolia before heading back to the U.S. to work at the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs in Oregon. That is a crazy lot of crazy places, full of crazy people and crazy things to do--so I thought, what if I could bend that craziness toward something more? And here we are!
So hey. Go crazy!
Unfortunately the muse struck late--I would have loved to take some challenges with me to the various places in China I've visited over the last few months. But now, this is all I've got, so China challenges will have to be limited to the Beijing area. Fortunately, this city is chock-full of awesomeness. What's something you've always wanted to see here? Let me show it to you.
I've been a contributing member to the Cleanplace guild for about five years now. It is a fantastic organization full of fantastic enough people to pull me away from my Warm Springs internship for a week. I have watched the guild, and the conference in general, turn lives around--I'm so excited to do everything I can to give that experience to more people!
Thank you for your support, and for traveling with me down this crazy road!
