So I'm getting on a train in about 6 hours to go to the Southlands of China. I'll be roaming around down there until the 27th, when I ab-so-lute-ly must come back to Beijing so that I can go home on the first of August. Now, some of you know me well enough to know that at some point, all this was planned out down to the day, with hotels and trains and buses and snacks and everything. So then let me surprise you by saying that all my plans (all of them, every single one) were completely destroyed by the arbitrary and capricious beast known as China Railways; I'll be more or less making it up as I go along. I have a ticket to Guilin and a hostel reservation in Yangshuo, and a somewhat good impression of how to get from one to the other. This is gonna get messy....

For those of you wondering where the frak my pictures are, most of them are on Facebook, cause that's what the rest of the world seems to be using these days, and its a Hell of a lot easier to put pics on there than on here. And Myspace can suck it.

It's 9 in the morning. I'm in a restaurant. There are these Russian/Kazahk/Mongolian/Uzbeks behind me, drinking a bottle of Absolut. I just finished my hash browns and eggs. When do you ever see a restaurant that sells bottles this cheap in the morning? Gotta remember this place.

BBQ at my place upon my return, details to follow.
