Just a quick note to say that I landed safely in China and, after a full 24 hours of travel, I am happily ensconced in my dorm room in Shijiazhaung! I’ll write up a longer update tomorrow when I’ve slept and am a bit less delirious, but for now, know that there were no major mishaps and I am looking forward to a good night’s rest, a tasty breakfast, and a day of “open house” meetings tomorrow.
For my American friends: remember, I’m on a 12 hour time difference now, so if I don’t reply to messages or if I seem to be writing at odd hours, that’s why. It’s currently 10:45pm in Shijiazhuang, but back in Charlotte, it’s 10:45am.
Good night, friends!
