All Quiet on the Eastern Front

With Chinese New Year almost upon us, hot news stories about China have slowed to a trickle and our regional blogosphere appears to be out to lunch. For better or worse, I’ll be around all week holding up the fort. It’s no fun travelling when you have to wear a gigantic stainless steel splint — in fact, it’s impossible. So for the first time since I moved to Asia, I’ll be spending CNY alone at my apartment, just me and my computer.

I expect this to be one of the most stultifyingly dull holidays of my life.

I will be home too but may be tied up.

Cheers!

Any consolation, on CNYE I’ll be on a train that ultimately cost me twice the ticket price arriving in Pingyao without a hotel booked.

Think of how much money you’ll be saving. Almost enough to pay for the operation! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ron, Glutter is going to tie you up? That would be so ironic, to find out she’s into S & M kink….

Phil, my deepest sympathies. And Simon, my operation was way more expensive than that!
