but then I realized: ack, wordpress.com is banned in China.
Seriously! After trying multiple times, to no avail, to get onto wordpress and then after trying to read other blogs, it dawned on me: the blogging sites are banned in China. Bleah.
It was like a total mystery for a little while there. It wasn’t as if the page announced “Banned” or anything–it just kept spooling forever and ever, without an error code. Hrm.
I’m only able to blog this via some clever wrangling. I’m feeling mighty naughty, blogging like this here.
But as a result, expect fewer updates, if at all.
I’m in Shanghai now. It’s humid and very very warm. I am glistening at all moments. I had a dumpling already here in town–it was the BEST DUMPLING EVER!!!! I also had a McDonald’s soft serve ice cream. It was the WORST ICE CREAM EVER!!!!
Maybe, sans blogging and sans television, I’ll get some writing done in between the sightseeing.
