I would like to think I have gotten better with my time management skills. However, packing and preparing leave the US for the next month kept me busy until it started to get light the morning of our departure.
After a long flight to Beijing, we were greeted by our good friends Apple and Wang Lei who whisked us away to an apartment in the city. We crashed hard after 24 hours of travel. The next evening we battled jet lag in attempt to stay awake and present a slide show at the Black Diamond store. The topic was climbing in Patagonia. Few Chinese climbers have visited Patagonia and most people know little about the area. Szu-ting did an excellent job highlighting the Chalten, Piritas Valley and Avellano Valley regions.
