I'm waiting at the Cleveland, Ohio airport for a flight to Newark, N.J. and from there on to Beijing, China. Final destination Shenzhen, China to attend the China International Medical Equipment Fair (CMEF) held April 18 to 21. According to the CMEF Web site, the event, founded in 1979, is now the largest exhibition of medical equipment, manufacturing, and related services in the Asia Pacific region. I attended the event last year, and it was huge -- larger than any trade show in the U.S., even IMTS.

Time to board the plane soon....stay tuned for more later!...

...A flight a few hours long has brought us to Newark, N.J., for the first leg of a loooong flight overseas. It's sunny and warm here so I decide to check the weather in Schenzen. Turns out it is the following: Foggy and 73°F. Wind: Variable at 2 mph, Humidity: 83%. Last year, the city seemed similar to a newer, larger Florida city -- palm trees, mild weather, gleaming skyscrapers, wide flower-laden streets filled with shiny new cars. According to the Schenzen Travel Guide:

"Shenzhen is located in the southern portion of the Guangdong Province, on the eastern shore of the Pearl River Delta. Neighboring the Pearl River Delta and Hong Kong (located just south of Shenzhen), Shenzhen's location gives it a geographical advantage for economic development. In 1980, the first Special Economic Zone of China was built in Shenzhen. From then on, Shenzhen become a highlighted city of China, one known for its rapid economic growth."
