Interests: About the Blog: "Beyond the Yellow Brick Road" is all about adventures into the unknown. The rise of China as an economic power. The impact that rise will have on Kansas and America. And how to make it from Beijing to Shanghai to Xi'an with minimal language skills, no experience in Asia and a severe allergy to air pollution. Follow Wichita Eagle reporter Alan Bjerga as he tracks down cutting-edge development in Chinese aviation as a market and as a manufacturer; as he follows Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and a band of Kansas business leaders as they try to promote trade with the Sunflower state; and as he seeks out the best karaoke in the Middle Kingdom. Will the quest be a success? What adventures for Kansas lie beyond Kansas -- "Beyond the Yellow Brick Road?" Check regularly for details as the adventure unfolds, on this blog and in the pages of the Eagle. It's like reality TV -- except it's real.
