Keen no more

This photo taken at 10:12am in Milan, Italy on April 23, 2013 represents the precise point in time when I vowed never to buy another pair of Keen shoes. That’s my 3rd pair of Keen Boston shoes in the trash can in my hotel room.

New Tire Smell

Out with the Old, in with the New

My current Chinese visa expires on August 19, 2012. The visas I typically get are good for 12 months and allow me to stay in China for up to 60 days at a time (not that my wife would EVER allow me to stay for 60 days). If I tried to enter China today (June 20, 2012) my visa would expire within the 60 days. The Chinese government does not like this sort of thing so I need a new visa. Unfortunately, my passport that I have had since 2003 was due to expire in February 2013. This means that my passport would expire before my new Chinese visa would. Time to get a new passport.
