So I meant to finish a blog post I started yesterday, as well as update it today and tomorrow … but we are being hijacked (shanghaied?) and taken to this middle school in another town so our administration can show off their foreigners. We have to stay overnight because on Sunday the school’s principal is doing us such a favor by giving us a tour of the Red Flag Canal. I wouldn’t be quite so annoyed if the Chinese weren’t acting like this is some big favor they are doing us. Like we were begging them to drag us away in a crappy van at 7am to work on our weekend.
We found out we would have no weekend on Thursday evening. It’s called planning. Get with it.
