I went to Beijing last week. First time in China (not counting Hong Kong and Macau in 1997). It was the same and quite different from what I expected. I was sick, and had to work half the time, but overall an awesome trip. The Great Wall is an understatement.
The hat is rad. And the ever-multiplying gray hairs in the beard are artificially dyed with coloring. Yes, yes. I painstakingly bleach each individual hair, so that I appear more wise.
OK, ok… either way, though, the hat is rad.
