Reflections on a Wandering Life.....

Man, this place gets expensive when stuff starts to shut down for Spring Festival! Cafeteria #8 closed on Tuesday. Of course, there are plenty of places to eat, but they are not so cheap. Breakfast at the coffee bar, Meatball sub and Pepsi at Subyway, Buffet at the Korean bakery (got to hand it to those guys, they really put out a pretty good spread). But I am spending too much money living this way. It is a very good idea to leave China during Spring Festival, unless you have family. In China, it's hard to travel during Spring Festival. Trains are packed. And it is very hard to get a ticket. Many people have no choice but to buy a plane ticket, because they just cannot find a train. The whole nation takes the week off to visit family. Schools are closed for a month. So this will be it from China for a few weeks. I am flying to Dongjing tomorrow.
