It might get a little quiet here within the next few days as I’m off to Shanghai, China very early in the morning.
The trip, from NYC to China, takes a solid 24-hours, and will most assuredly wipe the hell out of me. I’ve packed a months worth of New Yorker magazines, a book on the history of NYC from 1840 to 1919 (Low Life: Lures and Snares of Old New York), and lots of music. Hopefully, there’s some decent movies, but I’m not counting on it.
In case you’re curious as to why, well, it’s for the Kia X Games. And since I’m a Gothamist fan, here’s the Shanghaiist link: http://shanghaiist.com/2007/03/20/x_games_asia_co.php
So yeah, it’s gonna be a little quiet here. Just a warning. When I get back, I’ll detail the whole trip, including the impossible Visa application process and why I’ve already been personally warned by the Chinese government to not bring any literature pertaining to Tibet with me to read…
再见, for now…. (That’s goodbye.)
