I’ve been busy doing teaching stuff lately. For some reason, I’m not getting sound sleep at night.
Going to Shenyang for Friday and Saturday. I’m going to get the last of my luggage that I left there at my former roommate’s flat and visit some old friends. I’m also going to buy some things that I can’t find here in Beijing for some reason. For example, maple syrup and dress socks. There’s no METRO surplus store here in Beijing. Shenyang has.
I’m taking the night (sleeper) train to get there. I like that train because you can sleep on the way. I’ve taken the day train to Beijing from Shenyang and it sucked. Don’t go that way! 12 hours in a hard seat with Chinese people staring at me and nothing to eat but overpriced instant noodles.
Will return to Beijing on Sunday morning. I’ll take some pictures and post them here of course.
…Better get going or I’m going to miss my 10:50 p.m. train.
