a second day of rain, this time bit heavier and consistent compared to yesterday. since i was up anyway, i made myself some breakfast and went to the bank in union square to get a new debit card (my mother canâ€™t seem to remember where she misplaced mine while i was out of the country). the bank visit went very fast, but riding in the cold rain wasnâ€™t very fun and once i got home i never left.
i finally emptied out the 2 suitcases thatâ€™d been sitting in my living room for almost a week. the living room is still a mess but at least the suitcases are out of the way.
my driver license unexpectedly arrived in the afternoon. they said 5 days but i figured they meants business days and i wouldnâ€™t see it until friday at the earliest. i think my photo looks dorky but most people arenâ€™t in love with their license photo either. better than my old photo, the one where i look like an escaped convict. at least i shaved for this one.
my parents dropped by in the afternoon after work. i gave them a slideshow of the best of huashan (from 2 weeks ago) followed by my small collection of 3D china photos (as far back as may 2014 when i went to zhangjiajie).
approaching 6:00pm we went to dinner at the burger joint around the corner. theyâ€™d never been there before and i was craving a meaty american-style burger.
afterwards we came back, where i managed to finish my slideshow before they left.
iâ€™m going to prepare for bed now.
