I leave in an hour for the People’s Republic. We’ll spend a few days in Beijing and then head to Qingdao for the International Beer Festival. Then we go to Chengdu in Sichuan Province. This is the area that was hit last year by the 16th largest earthquake in history. Supposed to be an amazing place.
I’ve done very little prep for the trip because I’ve been settling into my new job these past two weeks as Director of Sustainability at American University. Not to mention the fact that we went to an open house the other day and decided on the spot to make an offer. We didn’t get it but what a whirlwind couple weeks its been.
In an hour I’ll be at the airport and can settle into reading the guidebooks. If you have any suggestions for people to meet, places to see, things to drink, by all means please post a comment! I’m interested, as usual, in all things related to beer and sustainability.
