I made it back safe and sound after approximately 23 hours of travel time.

Overcast in Hainan

Also … in the country

Yes, that’s right, it is a dead cat in the tree.

I was curious, too, so I asked about it.

I had trouble getting a straight answer … or maybe a properly translated answer … but to the best of my understanding, I think they put their dead cats in trees to make it easier for them to get to Heaven.

GL and I were invited to her cousin’s wedding out in the country.  Here’s some of the scenery.

Reggae Bar

We had an extra night in Nanjing (I think?) so we stopped over in this place.  It was smoky and dingy but they had a live band.  I was talking to some chick at the table next to ours and everyone was having a pretty good time.  I was enjoying the music and the atmosphere when suddenly this girl walks up to the stage and it turns out she’s the lead singer who’s been taking a break.  She motions for me to come join her for a song and I pull my jaw over the table and my friends push me up there.  I distinctly remember enjoying myself, though I also remember having no idea of the words I was singing.

In the Rock Candy Mountains

If you’re ever in China and you enjoy hiking, I highly recommend heading down to Yunnan to check out the Tiger Leaping Gorge.
