China, why don't you want me to check my email? :(


Day 2 visiting China and i still can't check my email. Apparently it looks like the government in all its communist wisdom has decided that google needs to be put in its place. Now, its pretty clear that far left and right governments are all about controlling their people, but isn't China past this? Come on already. Fine, block Facebook and Twitter. We can take a break from burdening indifferent 'friends' about what color ball of yarn your cat got tangled in today....but emails?? How are we supposed to do business out East if we can't even communicate with our customers while we are travelling on business? And they even blocked Microsoft Outlook. So if they are looking for a way to force developed countries into looking elsewhere to do business, your doing a great job!
