CHANGE OF SCENERY

As the team waits to depart for this morning's final training session in China and Battlestar Galactica is screening in the background, we thought it would be interesting to compare the experience in Guangzhou to the previous base camp in Changsha. Here's three:

There is English-language t.v. stations here. Not so in the hotel farther north. HBO, CNN, even ESPN. Guys are loving it. As they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder.

We're in the thick of things here. Went from luxury and seclusion to a Marriott that has a Starbucks attached to the hotel and a McDonald's across the street. And there's more people. Way more people.

It's about 20 degrees warmer here. Guangzhou, capital of the the Guangdong province, is located in the southeast near the South China Sea. Game-time temperature should be in the mid-70's tomorrow. And we saw something yesterday that we hadn't in a week: the sun.
