I've spent three years living in China, and speak pretty reasonable Chinese (+ my girlfriend is a translator). I love Macs, travel, and the internet, and I'm always trying to get in shape. Anything else you'd like to know? Just ask.

I'd second this; go into your local Chinese embassy and see what they say. All you can do is ask.

I love the idea of getting to these places as well. The remoter (is that a word?) the better. Good luck with your adventures

comment How should I deal with beggars in India?
I don't have any specific advice to answer your question, but on my travels there I was very rarely troubled by anyone. Not sure if it helped or not, but I was dressed and travelled very cheaply, so maybe they didn't think I was worth bothering!
