I haven’t updated for a couple of weeks, as I’ve been too busy generally having a good time. The crisis is over, vaguely. Brent is getting his own place with his girlfriend and I’m sorting something out in a couple of months. In the meantime we are both staying at John & Macro’s place, a pleasant and spacious flat which doesn’t have the tendency for cabin fever that the last one did. Though we are technically further away from the more attractive and active parts of the city (not the city centre – that’s a mountain) we’ve been going out a lot more, and spending a fair amount of money on taxis, drinks, barbeques, cigars and bb guns. Generally I’m having a great time. The idea of staying on in China for longer than a year has even entered my mind a few times. Life really is good for me here.
For anyone who hasn’t noticed (probably some of you lot in North America) the world cup started last night. This will be my main occupation over the coming month, so I’m just warning you it is something I’m likely to go on about a bit, in the public entries at least.
