Interview with the European Union (teaser)

Yesterday morning I woke up early, showered and shaved, and dressed sharp. Fly collar shirt with a moleskin blazer-- handsome and fashionable, second only to Will Smith.

Outside, the weather was perfect as I never thought possible in Beijing-- warm and breezy with fluffy white catkins in a rush through the air. Spring like a tangible scent. Comfortable, welcoming, cool.

I took the subway (Beijing is notoriously well-planned. Within hours of my arrival, I felt I had a decent grasp on the major modes of public transportation). The new #5 line took me to the Beijing University of International Business and Economics, a healthy if worn-looking campus not far from the main Olympic construction sites.

Twas there that I met my fate at the hands of the EU English-Chinese Interpreters Scholarship Selection Committee....................

..................but I have to run, so you'll have to be patient before hearing about the interview itself. I assure you, it will be worth the wait.
