Heading Out of Tunxi

I’ve been in this town for 5 days now and it’s past time to get moving. I’ll be boarding a train heading to Nánchāng – a city southwest of here in the Jiāngxī province at about 9pm tonight. It’s a 9 hour trip, so I hope I’m able to get some sleep. The rain has finally mellowed out here, but…

Alive and mostly well in Shanghai

After a brutal 17 hour journey, I finally made it to my hotel in Shanghai. After a weekend long going away party, followed by 17 hours of traveling, I was, and still am, beat. Luckily I arrived at midnight Shanghai time, so I was able to collapse and fall asleep, then wake with the sun up. I don’t think jet…
