Today is laundry day, so what better thing to do than write a few blog posts. I arrived in Shanghai on Wednesday last week. The flight was a bit rough but ultimately uneventful.

Since I arrived in Xi’an, I’ve made a point of visiting the Muslim District every day. There’s just too much going on there not to go.

I did this mainly because I was getting tired of searching for things in the ever-growing list. I also didn’t like the aesthetics of such a massive list where some […]Read more "Cleaning House – Nerd Style"

Not even close. Despite my failure to […]Read more "Wanderlusting Version 2013"
