Yesterday I travelled to Shouning in Fujian Province, via Shenzhen's new air terminal, Fuzhou airport and Ningde South Bus Station. Every step took me back in time.
It's -2C outside but a toasty +15C in my room with the heating full on. For the first time I remember I'm using those dressing gowns and slippers they give you in these places. One nice touch from the hotel was the roses on the bed. I guess they assumed that the person who booked the room would be keeping me warm. Anyway, they used her ID Card to sign me in because it was too much of a pain to check in a foreigner.
Today we head up into the mountains - wish me luck again.
