1 - Riding sidesaddle on the back of a motorbike while wearing a chipao.

2 - The sort of glow of sweetness at the back of your mouth from eating walnuts and drinking oolong tea.

3 - Eating peanuts with chopsticks. Testing myself to see how many peanuts I can pick up with chopsticks before dropping one.

4 - Being asked "rice or noodles?" and flipping a mental coin to come up with an answer.

5 - Watching the line dancing at the riverside at night.

6 - Asking "do they have a Western toilet?"

I'm leaving Quzhou by train tonight and flying out from Shanghai tomorrow. There will be another post, as I'd like to put up some pictures from Hangzhou and Suzhou and the World Expo when I have a computer that can do that, but this is my last post from China. It seems like a long time and a short time since I came here, and that's about as profound a reflection as I have to offer at the moment. Take care, happy Fourth of July, and I'll see you on the flipside.

.....yes, this. Sometimes, that's really all that you can say without saying it all. Travel safe, sweetie. :)
