Dear friends, I'm in Beijing right now trying to upload photos of some of the recent activities I've done like go to the Forbidden City, but the Chinese government has placed certain restrictions on uploads. They will not let me upload any pictures onto my website or onto Picasa, Google's Photo Organizer. Very frustrating indeed because now you will only get to read my stories with no pictures! Censorship in China , especially on the Internet, makes communication very difficult. Although I am not a journalist, I am a person who likes to keep my family and friends updated so I can still understand the frustration of an indefinite interruption in the flow of information.
