I don't have much to say for myself tonight. The one thing I did see in Wuxi, the one Chinese thing, was this pedestrian overpass that takes one over a freeway near the apartment. I took the bike to work today. On the way home, I took the bike down a new way, in the spirit of exploration. I came to the overpass and saw that it was bike friendly. That is, I could ride my bike up and down, and not have to push it. However, the surface of the overpass was tiled and so many of the tiles were missing I had to wonder about its' workmanship and maintenance.
I finished watching an old movie Bringing Up Baby on DVD yesterday. The movie made in the thirties starred Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant. It was a hoot to watch. I particularly enjoyed this bit where an Irish man named Gogarthy, in a monologue, exclaimed, in an Irish brogue, "Gogarthy, they say, you should stay away from the bottle. But I need a little nip to steady me nerves." Priceless. I may show it in the last ever movie class at school.
I will finally be able to pick up a card proving Tony's Canadian citizenship from the consulate in Shanghai. I applied for it over 18 months ago.
