Brought My Blog

Sitting at Gate 12 looking out at the blue Melbourne skies. Feeling a bit fuzzy. Boarding in one hour, new friend by my side. It's a year since I was on the long flights to-from Kuala Lumpur and many years since I flew to Korea, not knowing what would greet me. Already I'm doing a stocktake of the things I forgot to bring.

Pub last night with pear cider and my dear friend Snaxalot who encouraged me to snap photos of quirky stuff to help her with the love-hate feelings she has for China.

Been quite caught up in myself and the birthday business. Splendid party Sunday and China departure Friday. Three sleeps. Must turn my brain back to Chinese matters. Like hutongs and hotels, urban fictions and art, a shopping list and wifi.
