Delegation heads home
I put the group on a bus to the airport at 6:30 this morning. They were tired but happy. Last night we had dinner at the spectacular State Guesthouse. Hillary Clinton had been there just a few days before. Doug, Hong and I are tired, but all of us believe the trip went very well. I have had a cold since about Tuesday, with respiratory issues. I think the pollution has made it much worse. But, I am in China.
