My apologies: it's been awhile since I posted, but I have a good excuse: the internet cafe I've been going to in Lanping seems not to accept Blogspot cookies, and so I can't sign in. I sent this post to my mother to take care of for me-- that's the solution I came up with. I'll be moving on (I hope) to Liuku on Monday, so I can hopefully start posting again. I have a lot to say.
But for now I'm afraid I'll have to leave it at an apology. I've been very stressed out about thesis/research topic stuff the past few days and I seem to have gotten myself into a pretty significant funk. So I think I'll go back to our hotel and eat some chocolate (if I can manage an appetite, my stomach has been acting very oddly) and go to bed early. Tomorrow is a new day...right?
