Delegation of Chinese Academy of Science visits Orvieto

On September  13th I arranged the visit of a delegation from the Chinese Academy of Science (Institutes in Lhasa and Chengdu) to Orvieto.  The delegation was welcomed in the city hall by mayor Germani and Councelor Cannistrà. Both sides emphasized the necessity of strengthening cultural, scientific and economic relations.

Cheating the big red firewall!

2 days in Beijing now.  Food is as good as last time, traffic as bad. The workshop with ISTIC was amazingly good, many enthusiastic graduate and post graduate students who participated in the discussion.  I am excited for Berlin8 next week.

I visited today the Olympic village and the new center of CCTV, then later Opera in the new Beijing Opera house. Woww, finally great ideas and great architecture.   Neverthelesse I must admit,  I like most Guangzhou, Shanghai is too chic, and Beijing is too capital, but anyway.

A steak

Now I am for two days in Malaysia. Yesterday I had dinner at the Buffet Restaurant of my palace of the "Golden Horses", Brr. Nothing had any distinguishable taste. After nearly 10 days of China my taste buds had become sophisticated.
A the end of the week I asked myself: Is there anything in the Chinese cooking that was lacking to my nutrition habits and my taste desires?
