Closet Canuck censored in China

I'm in Beijing with my husband, who is attending the international meeting of Public Relations Organisation International.

Naturally, I'm blogging from the road, both in my Seattle Post-Intelligencer blog and here at
Closet Canuck.

But a funny thing happened on the way to reading
Closet Canuck ... I couldn't get into it. It turns out that China censors certain blogs and other Internet sites, and mine happens to be one of them.

Is it the word
Closet? Or possibly Canuck?

Whatever the red flag, the online censorship is known as The Great Firewall of China.

I have a friend who lives here in Beijing, and he suggested I use this website to get access to my Closet Canuck blog: Anonymouse.

It works!

There was no censorship of me taking photos in The Forbidden City
