I got this idea this morning when thinking about how to write the blog about yesterday.

Now this is something I’d love to do if I were in Beijing:

One day every weekend, I would gather 4-8 people, mostly young college students I suppose, at a meaningful site in Beijing. I would research any cultural/historical materials related to the site, but I won’t try to be comprehensive (I can’t) and I’d encourage the participants to do some research ahead. We would go around and talk, using headsets in order not to be intrusive and obnoxious like a tour group (I will NOT hold a red flag herding the group here and there).
