Erik Johansson“When I came back it seemed like nothing here had changed. But I certainly changed.  And there are things that have a new meaning now and situations that I will look at differently now that I have been through this program.  … Anything about the rise of China in general has a whole new meaning after seeing hundreds of building cranes everywhere we went, building apartments for people who didn’t need them yet, and driving on ten lane highways waiting for cars and busses and trucks to fill them up, like they already have in Hohhot (Inner Mongolia).”

“There are just so many new connections to make that it feels as though nothing here changed, it all changed so much because of how much more I have to relate it to.”
