Technically, we've been on vacation all week. It is October Holiday time in China which is when they celebrate the creation of the People's Republic of China. So there is food and fireworks and time off. We both get the week off, but since I don't really work much it doesn't make that much difference to me.
Originally we had planned to take a real break and go somewhere, but these things didn't work out. Our first plan was to go to Wuhan with Brian and Bethany and then further into Central China and see a cool mountain range. For various reasons, including Brian's family coming to town earlier than expected, we decided against making this trek.
Then we were going to take a day trip with our friend Sara. There are some cool little towns around the coast that aren't too far away and we thought we'd do that. But then Sara crapped out on us because she had taken an earlier trip and realized the traffic was terrible during holiday for a bus trip.
So here we are, sitting around the house, doing nothing.
Today though we're going to visit some cool places around the city. So that's something.
