Hi Sam from Opera China

你好 Sam,

Been a while since I sent in a photo but here I am in Xi’an (西安), a Chinese city at the start of the Silk Route, in China. I changed jobs in September and almost immediately went to China to visit lots of universities to talk about web standards with my new company Opera.

Xian is an amazing place and one of the oldest cities in China (ancient in fact) with a large Chinese Muslim community called Uyghurs who make delicious spicy lamb stews and flat breads. Xi’an is probably most famous for the Terracotta Warriors (兵马俑) which were created in the Qing Dynasty in 210 BC and buried with Qin Shi Huang the First Emperor of China. They were forgotten about until they were discovered in 1974 by local farmers drilling for water – probably with tractors 🙂

In the photo we’re all taking it easy with a beer after talking to over 200 students and Xian University. From left to right there is Richard Gao, Henrick Lexow Thruth and Zi Bin.
