Dork Sighting at Great Wall of China

[I drafted this on 8/19, and apparently never hit “publish post.” This one has photos, so if you’re using an aggregator of some sort, you may want to view the orgination site for full effect.]

The Novell Asia Pacific management team held a wildly successful three day partner summit here in Beijing. On day three, we took the delegates to the Great Wall of China for some team building activities.

Still without my luggage, I was in a nice new linen shirt I had purchased, and some shorts I had borrowed from my friend Justin Taylor (Novell’s Chief Strategist for Identity Management). But I the only shoes I had were the ones from the plane flight…they’re nice! Pegabo, from Italy. But, damn, I looked the dork tourist in them with shorts on the wall.

Adding injury to insult, Justin, wheezing from the climb up the wall, hugged me like a silverback, his shirt sweat-soaked shirt leaving his territorial mark.
