Happy Canada Day From China

When last I wrote, I was sitting at gate C32 awaiting my boarding call. Flash forward 16 hours in the air, and a 3 hour layover, and I am now comfortably lounging in my hotel room. It’s currently 1:55 in the morning on Tuesday July 1st. That’s right, I’m speaking to you from the future….
