Right, I’m packed and just about to shut down this laptop and bring all my crap to Justin’s where I’ll be storing it for the next 2 1/2 weeks while I’m in Shanghai/Thailand.
I’ve gotta book it because I still have to set up a bank account and get a towel before boarding my train at 11:30 a.m.
Yep, after 8 months of stashing thousands of yuan in a 10-Base Standard Workgroup Hub box, I’ve decided to step it up and trust it to a Chinese bank. We’ll see how it goes.
These last few days have been a flurry of packing, sorting, organizing, saying goodbyes (old school), saying hellos (new school) and figuring out exactly how this is all going to happen. But it’s mostly done now. I leave China with an Invitation Letter to return to the country (a handy thing to have, lemme tell you) and should be able to sort my visa out in no time in Bangkok.
Oh, I’ve got loads of pictures from a trip to the Dalian Forest Zoo that Vanessa, Maggie and I took yesterday – however they’ll just have to wait, in a smooth and well-timed move, my camera and my computer decided that they would give each other the silent treatment.
Anyway… I’m off. Next stop Shanghai. Goodbye Jinzhou, may a flight of angels carry thee [and so on].
