Robert Woo · October, 2009

I am a college student coming from Nanjing, Jiangsu Province. I am studying economics, political sciences and international relations and a whole bunch of other stuff at Macalester College in Minnesota. During my spare time I am interested in astronomy, science news, history, cycling, street-walking, hiking, camping and others’ lives.

China, a chaos of 1.3 billion types of phenomena; China, caught between now and then, right and left, east and west, power and rights, interests and conscience, stability and unrest, “harmony” and progress; China, my own motherland — is the single biggest mystery that I still struggles to understand. I wish writing at Global Voices Online could help me move closer to some kind of comprehension.
