somewhere in china a bird kisses a man and i end up going to the one place in chongqing i shouldn't have gone if i didn't want to be trapped with ten thousands of local residents. maybe going to bed last night around 3:30 affected my judgement. unlike the past 2 days of successful exploration and discovery, today i encountered a lot more failures, but a learning experience none the less and always interesting. my chongqing staycation unfortunately will be cut short since this afternoon lihui called me asking me to visit wanzhou a day ahead of schedule. so i'm rushing back to changshou tomorrow morning then catching another bus that'll take me to wanzhou (2.5 hours). i may be out of internet communique for a few days since i'm also visiting the countryside.
