It’s Mo not Mao
Wednesday afternoon, October 15, 2008
Just a brief note but two students and a recent doctoral graduate were our constant and extremely helpful guides during our time in Beijing. One of the guides, Chen (who wanted to be called Peter), was animated at the opportunity to speak and practice his English. He was really pretty good with the language but sometimes pronunciations were a bit skewed such as when he called me what sounded like Mao rather than Mo!
