The year of the monkey promises to become a very special year, particularly for me, according to my Chinese friends, as I was born in the year of the monkey. But in my opinion it will become a fantastic year for NICE, too. I am delighted to hear every time how fast you’re making progress and what new possibilities are opening up.
I am just sitting in one of the few internet-bars of Lhasa, in the heart of Tibet. After returning from Germany, I successfully completed my semester in Jinan. Immediately afterwards I went on this long-awaited, extraordinary journey. Four days ago I arrived here in Lhasa after an adventurous trip by train and Volkswagen Santana. In one week, I am setting out for the east of Tibet, and I will fly back via Chengdu to Jinan.
I am referring to the Asst. Director of the Office of Foreign Affairs of Shandong Province (freely translated). We are meeting again on February 18th and 19th. I will then relate further details. I would love to write the Jinan adventure-report you mentioned, but that, too, will be possible only in March at the earliest

With kind regards from the most breathtaking part of China,

Moritz Weigel
