Hi Pavel
I'm totally happy to keep on working with Chinese companies.
Now that I've left I just realized how much China was like the first true home
I ever had in my life. It's cool that there are so many people from China 
living here in Portugal.
Because I hardly speak any Portuguese yet, we always have to fall back to 普通话
and everyone immediately notices that I've learned it in Guangdong. 哈哈
A woman who works as professor and is my link in INL is right now learning 
Chinese and is picking up my terrible accent from 宝安/东莞 and 深圳 in general xD
She's helping me with filing all the paperwork to get started.
As I've mentioned previously, they're already working on a system, similar to
ours, so if JBD could deliver the imaging chip, it would be fantastic, because
we'd just have to put it together.
How many mega pixels can they deliver?
How much money will it be?

Cheers
-lev
