Leaving June 10
We take a bus, early Thursday morning, that will takes us from the Wuxi Bus station to the Shanghai Pudong Airport to catch a China Eastern flight to Vancouver.
T.P. was 10.5 rmb. I only had a tenner. The storekeepers told me they knew (renshi) my wife, and not to worry about it.
The wife wants to get a car because she never gets a seat on the bus, even when she carries Tony. I, being the foreigner, always have a seat yielded to me when I carry Tony.
Walking with Tony on Tuesday night, the neighbour seeing us, gave me a cigarette.
I must remember to reciprocate.
Are there any adult Wuxi Expats?
I ask this after reading an article, expressing an observation, I have had, that actors and actresses in Old Hollywood movies look like adults, while adult-aged actors, these days, look like teenagers.
Thinking of James Dean, I recall how I thought it strange that he played a teenager in his films, because he looked like an adult. These days, if he was his death age, he would most certainly be cast as a thirty or forty year old.
Going to Canada, I can watch World Cup matches at a decent hour. I think.
He strongly expresses the opinions of the other side. But most of what he says is easily put aside -- Keynesian nonsense.
I now know someone who has seen an Ipad.
What I want to get while in Canada
- Books: Flannery O'Connor, Evelyn Waugh, JR Tolkien, Heinlein, and Dune.
- Some Crown Royal and Coke.
Is Tony excited about going to Canada?
Tony has no idea he is going on a trip.
