Sorry, I know it's been a really long time! I've been using my paper journal instead of my blog lately.
The signs that I'm going home are popping up everyday - people inviting me to their homes, but I won't be able to have time, saying goodbye to friends, people going home for the summer holiday. I've started buying a few souvenirs as well, which is something that I never really do. I'm more of a pictures kind of guy, I don't like trinkets.
I went to Guangzhou about a week ago or so. Guangzhou (historically known as Canton) is a cool city with a lot of history and cool places to go. I went to the BaiYun Mountain, the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall, and some other places. The city itself is cool and very developed, but the people are pretty rude. I keep calling it the NYC of China because the people just weren't cool. 
I've been stuck in Lanzhou because I can't get train tickets to anywhere else - now is the peak travel time. I've gone to the train station the past 4 days in a row and still haven't been able to buy train tickets to Chongqing. I guess Chongqing isn't ready for me. I might go to Qinghai Lake instead. I've seen pictures and it looks pretty legit!
I've gotta go now, but I'll post a longer and better post tomorrow because now I'm using a friend's computer in his dorm.

  1. i tried to get on your facebook but i think my computer is being dumb. I got your text, and I can't wait to see ya! It kinda sucks you got delayed, but I'm pretty sure your were a bit happy to have some unexpected extra time there. Though I guess that means you have to put school on hold a semester? Sorry about that. Well I can't wait to catch up with you whenever you DO happen to make it to the States :-D
