It appears that I am not going to be able to blog about my Humen trip until next week. I forgot I’ll be traveling this weekend and I do not think I’ll have internet service. Also, I am slipping a bit behind on my book and need to focus on that for a day or two and get caught back up.
My challenge is that I see so many things to write about, I feel a little ADD sometimes. It’s going to be a tough weekend for me in that aspect.
Today I took a new friend to Beijing Lu Pedestrian Street (Changang Station, Exit D or F, Exit E works too but it’s easy to get a little lost in the subway shopping mall). It’s a fun place to shop, if you are a shopping fiend, which I am not, but I’ve had so many people help me find my way around here in China that I really want to pass the favor along to others. The clock is ticking for me here, so when I met this lady last week, I just really wanted to help her make a successful adjustment to this place. Anyway, we had a nice time, and she has learned how to manage the metro system now. Too bad the journey there is so long for us. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to get there, so by the time you get home, you just want to sit down.
winner-winner, chicken dinner 🙂
