A New Hope/Home.
Well, hi there.
You catch me in much better spirits: some serious fuck-you antibiotics have whopped my cold/infection into submission, and I’ve moved into my new digs, which are awesome-sauce.
Also, after a few rubbish high pollution days, today is absolutely beautiful: warm, sunny, clear and just…tasty. And after watching all you Australian jerks enjoy a mega weekend last weekend, I feel good that it’s May Day here, and I’ve got the day off. I’m off to the park, because my apartment complex has had a blackout and there is nothing to do there. But right now, I’m having a decent cup of coffee and a sambo at the Bookworm, a staple of expat life in Beijing: a huge bookshop where you can read whatever you want, smoke, drink and relax.
So, all good from the Middle Kingdom. Donkey Fire is a happy camper.
