So, if bad things come in three’s I think I’m done!!!
And what are those bad things you might ask…
1. Almost getting hypothermia up on the Great Wall because none of us were smart enough to bring a tent and we were rained on for 4 hours straight (see previous post)
2. Three days after the adventure that was, my dear wallet was stolen in San Li Tun without my awareness — I would still like to know how it happened even if I know I’ll never see any of the contents again!! This adventure ensued two trips to two different police stations, two trips to the Portuguese consulate, various international phone calls to friends and family and banks to cancel cards, and I’m still suffering from it!
3. and finally, what was supposed to be an easy half day trip back home turned into a mother of all nightmares when China Eastern, due its grave and bloody incompetence, decided to ground me and 3 others for 24 hours in Kunming in a shitty hotel in the middle of nowhere with shitty food and shitty service…not to mention that the next day, when we showed up at the airport again to take the same flight that we had been bunked off of they had the gall to tell us we weren’t in the system and might not fly AGAIN…let’s just say, my Chinese and English swear words combined never came more handy!!
I finally made it home, annoyed and exhausted only to have to pack again ‘cause today I’m off yet again to another exotic location: Sri Lanka!!!!
Till my return, I hope you are all having better luck than me :D
