Greetings From The Heartland

For the next few days, the four of us are calling the city of Taiyuan our home. Taiyuan is the capital of Shanxi Province, an ancient home of Chinese civilization and, more recently, one of its industrial centers. It is also a place where you can get lots of delicious types of noodles. (Right, Z!?) For some reason, although these noodles are famous all over China (there are tons of Shanxi noodle joints in Beijing), they don't seem to have caught on in the West.

Anyways, I will be delivering two lectures at Taiyuan University of Technology, which is perhaps the top university in the province. (Although I understand they have quite a rivalry with nearby Shanxi University!) Here are the links to the web pages where my talks are advertised...
