Portland Opera Chorus member - research scientist blogs from China
Jim Diamond, who has sung with the Portland Opera Chorus for the past few years is currently in Beijing, China. Dr. Diamond, who teaches chemistry at Linfield College, received a fellowship to do research at the national center for nanotechnology and science in Beijing. Jim and I sang together for many years with the Portland Symphonic Choir, and he contacted me from China with his new blog. You can learn all sorts of interesting things about what it is really like to live there as a Westerner. For example, scalpers at the Olympics are asking $7,000 per ticket to the opening ceremony. Just click here to bring up Jim's blog.
