Hangzhou, China
04.28.2007

So I guess some kids in Guangxi jumped into a crocodile pen and one of them got eaten. A woman in Nanjing fell out of a high-rise building and lived only because her fall was broken by a huge pile of human shit. This China is real odd. Like it. But ready to be leaving. Going up to the great wall in a couple of days so that when people say “have you seen the great wall?” I can say “yes, it was a great wall.” Then I have a cousin in a backwater gray gray industrial city in Henan province that I want to visit. I only met him once in my front yard about seven years back. I said “hey” to him, and he said “hey” right back. That was the extend of out cousin-ship until he came to China and we began emailing each other. I think he is a pretty cool dude. He did a bunch of aid work in Africa and has just been travelling around for a while, trying to get a hold on this planet. I look forward to meeting him.

Other than that I am just making arrangements for a big thesis project that will involve a dozen different countries, three continents, and six months. Just need to get some grant money first.

I really don’t understand Chinese women’s fashion. I wrote a few days ago about how women have ceased wearing pants here…(and have yet to substantiate with photos) .Well, there is now a new style that is equally perplexing: it seems as if the camel toe is in vogue. Is this the way that it is everywhere now? Or is this just China? Seriously, too many women are walking around in these streets with their pants jacked way up into their cracks for it not to be intentional. It just looks really uncomfortable to me. Mira thinks it is because many Chinese women do not have much butt stuff…(really, Chinese people don’t have butts) .so they have to show off something somewhere???? Or maybe it is just sexy, who knows. I don’t.
