Spring of 2008, I traveled to China with a group of students from my school for the month of May. We hit Hong Kong, ShangHai, traveled up the Yang Si River and ended our adventure in Beijing. The culture gap between our two societies is immense but the personal relationships visited briefly showed me that even on the other side of the planet, people are people. Cant wait to find myself in this part of the world again.

Last friday, March 18th, I found myself in Plum alley surrounded by Fixies. If you dont know what a Fixie is, its a fixed gear bicycle where the turn crank is attached by chain to the back wheel, and this is the preferred form of transportation for the "hipster" of this day and age, although not all the riders rocked Fixies. The event King of The Hipsters is an annual happening where bikers pay to compete for prizes as well as street cred. The game is simple, ride around Salt Lake City collecting bits of information and the first one to the finish line is crowned king. The only rule, their are no rules.
