I made an impulse buy of a $30 Elvis suit 3 weeks before leaving Australia in Jan 2008 to travel for a year.
It's crap....and now it's coming with me.
I don't sound like Elvis, look like Elvis, or sing like Elvis.
I am Crap Elvis.

Love Mao Tender: Crap Elvis in China

The Great Wall of China (and the Great Tool of Australia)

In a wall-naming vote, "The Not Too Shabby Wall of China." only just lost out.

It kept the Mongolians out for hundreds of years. It kept a $30 Elvis suit out for about 10 minutes.

Made a silly mistake when I ordered the Birds Nest Stadium instead of the birds nest soup. Could be doing the dishes for a few days to pay that bill off.

Gripped by Olympic Fever. Not quite as nasty as Bird Flu or SARS.
Demonsrating the Breaststroke outside "The Water Cube." It's moves like this that made Phelps what he is today.

The plan was if I stood really still, no-one would notice. Later police questioning suggests otherwise.

Mao portrait overlooking Tianneman Square.

I'm collecting dead leaders. With dead Lenin already off the list in Moscow, it was time to add dead Mao. Only dead since 1976 so the smell wasn't as bad. Here I am in front of his mausoleum (Mao-soleum?). Full military uniform allowed inside. Wig and glasses denied.

In forbidden clothes in the Forbidden City.

Maybe they could protect the railings that protect the relics, by putting some more relics in front of the railings.

How many times must I say this...
