...I'm off to pony-land!
Just one more day in the office, and then I'm off. I'm leaving tonight, and despite the fact that people have been telling me: "You're going to Inner Mongolia -are you crazy?! It's sandstorms up there!?" I'm quite excited. My bag's packed with everything from UGG boots to a bikini (I was hoping there would be some hot springs/saunas up there....?!). I don't care too much about the weather actually (Although pls, weather God, no sandstorms?!?! I cannot find my goggles), I just wanna relax, get a change of scene, enjoy some good food, and see some (dried up or not) grasslands. I hope I'll manage with that.
Once I come back life is going to be rather full-on in terms of work. I have a mix of things to look forward to next week, including having a speech at a press conference in front of 100 journalists... and yes, of course it'll be in Chinese!
But I have promised myself NOT to start worrying about that until next week. So until then I say, "bye bye!" (should be read with a Chinese, female accent to get the right "vibe"). Hohhot-Inner Mongolia/sandstorm/grasslands/ponies and cowboys (?) -here I come!
