I just dropped four rolls of film of at my developer and the word is that they should be ready to pick up tomorrow night. I have a feeling that I won’t be making it down until Wednesday or so, that means you will have to wait…

On another note, I found and shot some sports today. Ditan Park has croquet pitches and there were some people playing. It seems to be a modified version of the game, but not all that different from Canadian style.

I also wandered around the hutongs and got rained on. Fall is in full swing here and winter can’t be too far along. I’ve had to turn on my heater and occasionally wear gloves in the apartment.

This week is National Day in China. That means that everyone in the country is on holidays for seven days. I used this time to meet up with my favorite person in China, nay, the world. Emily.

I’ve known Emily since I moved to China the first time in 2008. We’ve kept in touch since I moved away. This was a perfect time to catch up. To make it easier for both of us, we picked a half way point to go to. Nanjing was chosen as Emily’s roommate is from Nanjing so we could save on Hotel costs. Props to Wendy and her grandma for the hospitality.

We went everywhere in Nanjing. It was a tiring but amazing trip. It was rad to catch up with Emily. It makes me miss Hangzhou even more. We talked about me moving back and she told me to stick out my contract (sound advice) and move back after my year is up. So that is my plan. 10 more months.
