Dear ladies and gentlemen, I write bearing news from far away lands in the orient... Shanghai has not born the fruit I had wished and I have now made the final decision to............ do a runner! Essentially I did not want to get involved in dodgy dealings (which are common here to say the least) and therefore could not find a job for love nor money nor sweat nor blood.
so THE PLAN... I will travel in China for a further month and then leave to the sun-kissed land of Australia. My travles will be quite extensive and I really can not wait. This weekend I'm off to Hangzhou, not too far from here. Then next week, which may hold a special day for me (on thursday!!) Gary and me will be off to Chengdu to see Pandas and take a looooong train to to Songpan to do a 3 day horsetrek around the snow peaked mountains of Tibet. Following from this I will go up to Beijing to see Joshua (he does not know of this plan yet! but who would say no to a visit from moi?) This brings me near to the end of the month when I will travel back to Shanghai, have one last glance at the bright lights and have a (teary I'm sure) farewell to both Gary and China on the 26th November when I will be off..... to OZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.......(Melbourne, Australia)
Im sure there will be many tales in the next month, so, as always, I will keep you updated. But you must stick to your end of the deal and keep me updated with all things English.
All my love, a "new-boho" Naomi xxx
