Farewell Australia!
Well, its time.

PhD is done (thesis accepted on the 6th of this month), forms signed, boxes ticked. I'm leaving our shores... For the next two years I will be knee-deep in Silurian fish and feathered dinosaurs at the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology (IVPP) in Beijing. Still don't speak a word of Mandarin. However, my work is immediately opposite the Beijing zoo so I should be able to get to work by dumbly shouting "PAN-DA!!!" at the taxi drivers.

Dunno how often I will be available online since such Western amenities like Youtube and Facebook are blocked in that part of the world and I certainly would not admit to using proxies on a public forum such as this. See you in a couple of years then!
