End of a long (and great) week in Beijing...

Ni hao.

Yeah, that's about the sum total of my Mandarin Chinese. I can say "hello" and "thank you". I'm flying off to Shanghai to meet with a few customers next week, and then back to San Francisco for a conference, and finally back home to DC. I'll get to spend about 5 days at home, then off to San Francisco again for the Emerging Markets Partner CTO Summit, and on to New Delhi and Mumbai for a couple weeks. Long flights, glad hotels do dry cleaning and laundry!

I thought I would upload a couple pictures from Beijing for grins:

My favorite spot in the Beijing office. A coffee maker that actually grinds real coffee and makes a decent caffeinated beverage. There is a new "pod" coffee machine, but that's too much work when this machine rocks.


A picture of my hotel, the JW Marriott in Beijing on a rainy day, from the office window. It rocks being able to walk across the street to the office in the morning.


After a long day of work, nothing beats a massage and a game of pool. Huh? What a strange combination.


In the Solution Center of the Beijing office, there is a timeline of major Sun events. Near the beginning of the timeline is this picture of Scott. If I spoke Mandarin, I would tell you what it says, but apparently it was pretty important, and it never hurts to paint a picture of Scott on the wall. He may be "big in Japan", but in China, he is artwork.
