I’m at Beijing Capital International Airport right now, waiting for my flight to Kunming which boards in about 10 minutes. At least, it’s supposed to. Weather’s pretty bad now in terms of visibility… not sure if it’ll make it in time. Hopefully it won’t be another 2-hour long delay like my last flight. The airport is awesome in that it has free internet access… which is what makes this post possible. Will update ASAP.


Man it’s hot here. Seems like the major cities in China are all caught in a heat wave right now. In Tianjin yesterday it reached over 38 degrees Celsius, and in Beijing it was over 40. Seems like the government issued a yellow alert for the Tianjin area, which basically means potentially dangerous levels of heat, and to limit outdoor activity unless absolutely necessary. Highest level is orange (basically, red), which has been issued in Beijing. Basically, for me, it means that I’m not going anywhere anytime soon. Watching TV, eating junk food, etc.┬áStill working on getting the pictures uploaded. Once I get that done I’ll do more detailed commentary for my trip. Wait for that to happen soon.
