Goodbye Thailand. Hello China

Okay, so this will be a quick one because I am at a funky computer kiosk at the Bangkok airport (and it is 4:30 in the morning). Just a quick note to say that after a wonderful month in Thailand, I am headed to China.

I had to get out of the country to renew my Thai visa anyway, and I've got this Chinese visa that I paid out the nose for, so I figured why not, right? So I bought a one way ticket to Xi'an China. Where's that?, you ask. I don't really know. In fact, I've never known less about a place I am traveling to. All I've got a is a Berlitz pocket guide to China and an adventurous spirit. We'll see how that goes, I suppose.

I've been meaning to make a couple of posts recently with pictures and the works but the tropical island internet gods have been conspiring against me. I hope to find a good internet connection in China and do a big ole picture dump soon. I've got a couple of good ones of Shane getting harrassed by a monkey, more caves (no cobra this time), a live puffer fish, and more monuments. I'll try to get those up soon.

So sawadee kahp Thailand, nee hao China!

Watch out for local Montezuma Wang Chung's Revenge: "The city is nested between a flood plain created by 8 surrounding rivers and streams, most of which have been too polluted to be used as sources of fresh water." (Wikipedia) You should go check out that cool looking Terracotta army 40 km to the east (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Xian_guerreros_terracota_general.JPG) And please, please please send me a picture, or even better, a postcard from the Great Mosque of X'an. That would be awesome! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Mosque_of_Xi%27an) Otherwise, it looks like you've picked another winner to visit! Lucky Bastard! :) Good luck!

Xi'an, went there on a train. Note: it's hard for a girl to pee in a hole in the floor on a rickety moving train. Bring your own tp :)
