I haven't posted anything on this blog for a very long time. This can be put down to both laziness and the fact that I now have a written diary. It's much more personal and theraputic than something as public as this could ever be. Whenever I have the urge to write I write in my little green book, rather than posting on this blog.
I spent the last month or so travelling. First to Harbin and Beijing, and the last three weeks in Japan. I didn't take many photos, mainly video footage, which I plan to start ploughing my way through in the next couple of weeks before class starts again. But here are a couple I did take.
I really need to invest in a camera that has a flash and takes decent photos instead of using the less than perfect photo setting on my video cam.
But anyway, I am back in Nanjing now. We had Chinese New Year the night of the 13th. Fireworks were exploding all around the city to create the atmosphere of a happy war zone. It started snowing just before midnight so the morning of the 14th I woke up to this.
I'm not sure I appreciate the cold but at least it looked pretty.
Well, this blog should probably come to a close. I intend to post more on here. I need to practice writing more. I will leave you with an image of one of the most noteworthy purchases I made in Japan; my giant cuddly pikachu.
