Breaking Up is Hard to Do...
I'm back in town now after a full and relaxing week in Beijing. I'll post more on Beijing, with lots of photos, this week. The food was great, I met an old friend and made some new ones, the weather warm, the sites interesting, and the hostel courtyard the perfect place to relax.
Talking with the various backpackers, most of them suggested that I take off and go to South-East Asia or to Europe now. Hearing their stories of travel of course didn't help either! I know that I'd love it, and I can't really figure out what's holding me back. It's like some sort of bad dating relationship, where breaking up is hard to do even though you know it's the best choice. I'll have to do a bit of research into the possibilities.
Anyway, it's off to bed as I've got a 7:30AM class tomorrow to start the week. I'll get to sleep just as soon as the boys above my room stop shouting, pounding on the pipes, screaming like girls, throwing chairs, and stinking up the bathroom.
