An amazing week!

Well it has been a bit of time since my last post. It has been my intention to find a way to do this via video instead of the written word. I also set the entire blog up on my own server but it appears no one could find it… a good college try but not the correct move it appears …

This week started with a quick trip to London. Most of the people I know were super busy on rehearsals or shows but I did get a chance to see a few friends, share some wine, sushi and laughter. I was then off to MacMillian’s International Magic Convention where I am proud to say I left as their new champion. It is a huge honor for me as the names on the trophy from previous years reads as a who’s who in magic. I also noticed I count many of the same names as my friends these days!

I jumped on a plane to Hong Kong but the Chinese travel folks mispelled my name and I was almost denied the flight. I was also traveling with two bags and the airline thinks a 12 hour flight qualifies for only one suitcase! The kind lady at the counter let the second one go for free when I explained it was just to hold the BIG new trophy I had won! lol

I met a super great guy, Heyman, who transported me to Shenzhen, China where I will be for the rest of the week. Had a great dinner with Albert Tam of Hong Kong and Eric Eswin from FISM. The evening ended over a bottle of wine and some great conversation …

I am sure looking forward to this magic event here in China…

To make the week even more amazing the folks at magicnewswire.com have published an audio podcast of an interview I did with them this Summer. If you have a spare 56 minutes you might want to check it out!

Cheers,

Shawn
