"Working in Tinajin"
I spent two and a half weeks working for a software company in Tianjin in December, 2003.
I ended up working like a madman, so I didn't get to see a whole lot of the city. Plus, I was working in a rural district outside the city. Still, it was a good trip. My boss and his wife were excellent hosts. One afternoon they took me to the TV Tower in the city to have a look out over Tianjin.
I would have had a chance to see more of Tianjin and possibly done some touring in China, but I broke my hand on the eve on my visit and had to postpone by a week.
Here's a picture of me struggling mightily to use chopsticks with my injury.
