Heading north

I swore last winter that if I ever did return to Beijing, it would never, ever be in the winter.

So guess where I’m going tonight?

I hear it is absolutely brutally cold at the moment. Before I left Beijing, I gave away all my heavy clothing — scarves, sweaters, coats, gloves — to poor people there, knowing I would never need them again. After all, I was going to Singapore, and I live in Phoenix, and the thought of returning in December would have been absurd. Now I wish I had kept at least a couple of those things.

Blogging should dwindle to a trickle over the next 24 hours, but I suspect I’ll be back in true form by Friday, after Beijing has once more inspired, delighted, terrified, mystified and utterly overwhelmed me. So hang on.
