Back to the U.S. and blogging.

Going to China was simply going to be the highlight of this year for me. So many preparations and work went into this project. But as we all know, plans are made to be changed.

For the past couple of months, I have had a strained back. much to think about that I really let it go. I did extra stretches in the morning, longer time in the gym and double the work on the weights. I noticed the week before the trip that it was difficult to get out of bed in the morning, but still too much to do to think about such things. I did go to Urgent Care, let them know my situation and got a muscle relaxer and pain pills, I mean we are talking about the Great Wall here.

The long flight was disastrous for me. I could hardly stand it, then on the very first morning I fell. That probably was the end of a disc that was going to give me grief. By afternoon I hired a wheel chair driver who spun me all around the Forbidden City of Beijing. I saw everything first as no one could keep up with him. I paid him cash at the end of the day. By now I was becoming aware that my trip to China would be just one day. Tomorrow I will share with you the first two hospital visiits!
