Right after the Governor's Conference on Trusteeship, I was off alone for another visit to Daegu Haany University. This was at the invitation of our partner institution. They asked for me to attend their 30th anniversary of the school's founding and their vision declaration which is setting the stage for the future of this fine institution.
Our trip to Brazil has – so far at least – been both challenging and rewarding. The challenges started Sunday, our day of intended departure on a week-long trip to Brazil, hopefully to return with letters of intent between EKU and several Brazilian institutions for student and faculty exchanges; perhaps even a dual degree program. Our travelling party was Marc Whit
Before I get into a description of the highly productive day we had on Thursday, I need to revisit my original post about our Brazilian adventure.
Our last full day in China was packed with sightseeing during the daylight hours.
Friday in Xi' an included a visit to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda (remember, we saw the little one Thursday afternoon) and a trip to the archeological activity where the Chinese government continues to excavate the site where some local farmers discovered some pottery fragments and ancient bronze weapons while digging a well.
It has been a few days since I have posted; so there is some catching up to do. While I have had internet access at each stop, my ability to access our WordPress blog publishing software has been spotty.

Three days into our trip to China, I finally have an opportunity to catch my blog up-to-date. During our first two days in Xinchang, internet connection would not allow me to connect to the blog editor. Now, in the larger city of Hangzhou, that problem no longer exists.
It seems the only times I work on this blog is when we are traveling outside of the country. Another such opportunity is coming up just after the first of the year, when Joanne and I will visit China along with the Dean of the College of Business & Technology, Dr. Bob Rogow, and his wife Carol, and Business faculty member Dr.
We had a safe, uneventful return home, arriving at the Blanton House some 30 hours after getting up in our Daegu hotel room for the ride to the airport. Now, we are in a New York City hotel, on the second day of an alumni/development trip. Tonight we will be with more than 30 EKU alums and friends at a function in Manhattan.
We had another good day in Korea today. On the way to the campus of Daegu Haany University, we stopped by Gyeonsan stadium. The university's main campus is in Geonsan, while the medical college is in Daegu. Miss Kim, who took very good care of Joanne and me during our stay, agreed to pose with us for this photo.
