Pittsburgh is less diverse than 98 out of 100 of the largest metropolitan areas in the United States, according to the 2010 census
We did what we were supposed to do and visited Tian’an men and the Forbidden City. It was 98 degrees in the sun. I won’t tell you about Tian’an men and the Forbidden City. You can look them up in wikipedia. Suffice to say that is was vey very hot, and there were many many tourists, along with plenty of water and ice cream vendors.
We arrived in Beijing twenty-four hours after we left Pittsburgh and twelve hours ahead of Pittsburgh time. Tsinghua University, just north of Beijing’s core, is our home for the week. The campus is green, the supermarket is full of Chinese food and the spicy chicken and dumplings are delicious.

Have you ever thought you’d like to ride your bike to work, but it seems too dangerous? Do you wonder what life would be like if your children could walk to school, and you wouldn’t have to drive them? Do you admire cities like New York, with its miles of city bike lanes, or Paris, with its 20,000 bikes to rent? Do you hate the fact that you need to drive your bike to a good trail? Would you like to live in a city that is built for people, not cars?

Our April 26 cityLIVE! is telling the stories of other medical innovators.
