    Great & timely choice for project!! Was just pondering this morning how, if I was as young as you are now, this would be exactly the topic/place I would have embarked upon.. All the b(r)e(a)st @ China!

    Ik heb van een studieadviseur van de UvA de link naar uw blog gekregen. Ik had namelijk een vraagje, ik doe mijn profielwerkstuk over de economie van China en misschien weet jij daar iets meer van? Ik hoorde dat je onderzoek wel iets met internet te maken had, maar misschien weet je er toch iets meer van. Zou je misschien contact met me willen opnemen?
    Mvg, Nadia van Baarsen.
