Happy birthday to my little brother Mackenzie! A big 25 today and I wish you all the best from Beijing. You have pushed me, inspired me, and made me think of what it means to be a brother. Remember when padre sat us down in the living room to read us "Who moved my cheese?" as we squirmed about under the chairs? Or going over to Ed's for ice cream and that inevitable lingering smell of cigarettes as Norma did the crossword? Every time I see the scar on my left arm I'm reminded of chasing you out the back door, shattering glass just for a baseball glove. Hell of a glove though. We've roadtripped to Montana, partied in McCall, and spent countless times together laughing for no reason. I cherish those memories and look forward to creating more with you in the future.  Much love and have a wonderful birthday!

This is my travel blog and writing portfolio covering my life in China and my trips around the world, including the food, experiences, people, culture, history, and architecture. Living in Beijing has been an adventure, so here's some insight into one of the world's biggest cities.
