Greetings to my friends in China! It has been too long! I last visited China in 2006 when I took part in a physics conference in Beijing. It was an extraordinary experience. My first trip was in 1985 when I travelled across your remarkable country by train. In my physical travels, I have only been able to touch the surface of your fascinating history and culture. But now I can communicate with you through social media – and I hope to tell you more about my life and work through this page and also to learn from you in reply.
我的中国朋友们，你们好吗？好久不见了！我上次拜访中国是在2006年，当时在北京参加了一场物理会议，那次经历非常难忘。我的首次中国之旅是在1985 年，我那时候坐火车游历了你们雄伟的国度。这些旅行使我对博大精深的中国历史和文化略有了接触。不过现在，我可以通过社交媒体和你们交流了 —— 通过这个微博，我希望和你们分享我的生活趣事和工作心得，也希望能在互动中向你们学习。
