Sunday 14th April
Wander down the Bund, see a dead pig in the Huangpo, chat to physics student. Catch ferry to the other side for photograph of the front. Resembles Liverpool. Come back and have a long read in the foreign language book store. They have a few English paperbacks, and if you paid in Remninbees they are cheaper than in the UK.
We have a slap up meal in the posh Sichuan restaurant with the young chefs fooling about at the table. They laugh and joke while leaning on your shoulder with one arm, fag in the other hand. Meanwhile you are trying to manoeuvre some wobbly bean curd into your mouth with chopsticks. Excellent grub 6 yuan each including large bottle of beer. This is a splurge.
Make a date with Melia for the 6:30 a.m. tomorrow.
