Comments, Links

Tuesday and Wednesday Jodi and I took a little trip to 马鞍山 (Ma'anshan) with a couple of friends. It was really just for the heck of it, all we really did was eat snack, play games, window shop, and go out for barbeque dinner. This is a shirt we found; if it hadn't been pink, I would have taken it home:

It had a picture of Mickey Mouse's head on the front, and said in cartoony lettering: Live Long And Prosper

Speaking of vacation, in less than three hours I'll be hopping on a train to Hunan. Yesterday Jodi and I went out and spent RMB 50 on snacks: water, fruit, sunflower seeds... Armed with that, a little bit of money for the so-so boxed train lunches, a portable DVD player, a deck of UNO cards, and two good attitudes, we should be able to weather the 17-hour, overnight hard seat (!!!) trip.

I may not have computer access in Hunan, so maybe don't expect posts for a while. See ya!

No, I purposefully picked up a deck of UNO cards in Hong Kong last time because I knew I probably wouldn't be able to find them in Shanghai. I'm making an HK run in a couple of days, let me know if you would like me to pick up a deck or two for ya.

Thanks! I only wish I had known about that earlier, as we were somewhat marooned by our lack of knowing anything good to do in town. It would have come in very handy!
