Heads up from China
I’m spending 2 weeks in China, and I’m in the middle of my stay here! The first week was devoted to exploring what connecting ocean scientists and graduate students with the greater public here in China. You can read more on our blog here.
This week I’m working on a couple of stories for The World, which I’ll put together upon my return.
We visited the Great Wall on our first day here. A young Chinese man came up to me to take his photo with me. I told him “wo Ari,” thinking it meant “I’m Ari.” But he said: “I love you!” Apparently “wo ani” means “I love you.” Now I know to say “wo jiao Ari.” Ah, well!
