Photo Friday: Instagramming across China

We're back from our China trip (Hong Kong and Guangzhou for work, Beijing for fun) and, as always, sorting through a boatload of pics and stories.

One of the many fascinating things about China is that Facebook and Twitter are blocked once you get to the mainland, but Instagram works just fine. Normally Instagram is something I use only occasionally, but for this trip it became something of an umbilical cord to the goings-on in the world "back home" and vice versa.

For those of you who already follow me on Instagram, this will be a bit repetitive. For the rest, here's a quick slice of some trip highlights. It's a typical mix of foodporn, ironic oktapodi shots, and some other random stuff thrown in. Rest assured, the full slate of photos and stories (taken with a real camera and not just my phone) will follow.
