Long time friend and mentor, Brian Bridges, is enjoying a well-deserved vacation in Nanjing, China with his family. Since he is the director of CLRN and CUE president he’s taking a few minutes each day to post the details of his travels from his iPod touch. His normal blog, Brian@CLRN, is and Edublog which is strangely blocked in China. As a result, he’s posting on a Blogger alternate, Travels with Brian. When you have a moment check out his stories. Its a nice alternative from thereality I think most of us are feeling – August 1st and all of those back-to-school preparations are just around the corner.
