Tiananmen Square? YOu were there??? Can't believe it's been that long..... time really flies.
You were there??? Do tell.
Time really does fly. I feel a little shocked it's been almost 20 years. I was there, in China, though not in Beijing when the shit went down. I was teaching in northeast China (Manchuria, really). I had been in Beijing just a couple of weeks earlier, riding a bike around the university district, dodging demonstrations and handing out resumes. Getting out of the country was rather fraught. Some of my students ended up in prison, and I wasn't sure if I would, too.But in the end I went back for another two years, in Beijing.
