off to fujian region to stay in a hakka house which is 3 storey round house made of earth etc so should be really interesting. been eating lots of yummy food - went out for japanese last night and ate fresh urchin roe which was intensely yummy, trying to get body into new time zone and go to canteen for lunch when body feels it is 2 am. yesterday went to dress makers to get me some new thai pants amde in bright colours as broke my other ones tryingot use squat toilet. last night at japanese resturant scared the living daylights outof a womna in the toilets as didnt see her behind me when washing my hands - i dont believe in using paper towels for environmental reasons so when turned round and shook hands vigourously covered lovely woman in shower of water! i am such an idiot!
