And with a massive writing assignment to work on this weekend and a frantic effort to brush up on my Chinese I won’t be posting much. I may just close down comments altogether when I’m away so I don’t have to deal with spam. (The last thing I want to do is spend hours of time in a Lijiang Internet cafe deleting obscene comments.)
It’s a short trip, only 14 days, and I wish I had more time to spend there. Still, I’m incredibly excited, and won’t really believe I’m going until I get on the plane.
