Anubis has been dining out in China–and he’s a hit! He’s loved being welcomed everywhere he goes–including restaurants…

Tiananmen Square

I am so grateful that I had the chance to explore Tiananmen Square in Beijing–visiting many historic sites in China in the lead up to the country’s celebration of its 70th anniversary on October 1st…

Spice Magic in China

A colleague in China invited me to enjoy Indian food with him and I am glad he did–so fun to have my favorite vegetarian dishes while on the road in China.

Yum

It was hard to choose from the menu (so many good options), so we also got dishes to take back with us and put in the fridge for the coming days.

Eating out in China

We also got to meet the manager who is our contact for delivery–fun to explore Indian food and learn more about the Indian community in China.

Anubis Takes Flight…

Anubis at the gate

My travel companion and partner-in-crime, Anubis (who is sweet sixteen), recently flew with me from New York to China–via South Korea.

Anubis in South Korea

Anubis has lived in Beirut (he was there through over 20 bombs) and the Sultanate of Oman, so he has quite alot of travel (and life!) experience. He really is a jet-set chihuahua! I was so proud of him for doing so well on the flight to South Korea, and we got very good and attentive care in the airport to help us make the last leg to China. It felt so great to finally land in China with Anubis and my wheelchair (and me) in one piece–many thanks to Air Asiana for making it all possible!

Buddhist Temple…

Buddhist temple in Mongolia

My Mongolian colleagues took me to this Buddhist temple in Mongolia (and others) to speak with the monks about philosophy, suffering, and other topics of interest. I was grateful that they were so welcoming and appreciated their wisdom and insights. They were preparing for a big ceremony the next day, so they kindly let us watch their preparations for the initiation rites.
