Mao and Me

What, did you think I *wasn’t* going to get a photo of me in an ironic t-shirt in front of the Forbidden City in Beijing? It seems a bit unrealistic, don’t you think? ;)

I assume his spirit felt honored by his likeness on my shirt.

Thanks once again to Threadless.com & the Communist Party.

Here I am looming over the massive Forbidden City from Jingshan Park, just to the north. Apparently my photographer has not mastered the concept of "Do not position person directly in front of relevant objects in photo"

Note the dour, gray, smoggy sky in photo above… Never though I would be missing the clear blue skies of Mexico City, but Mexico’s air quality is looking pretty good right now!!
