Chengdu, China

Flew at 6.30 in the morning from Houston to Newark, Newark to Beijing, Beijing to Chengdu. It was the absolute longest flight ever, and I feel like I never ever want to be on a plane again... I don't think I'm built for sitting for 12 hours straight. For one thing, I get motion sickness... and I suppose that's the second, third, fourth, and fifth thing too.

I couldn't read on any of the flights, but at least that gave me time to "catch up" on my sleep. Which didn't happen either, because they had little personal tv screens on the trip from Newark to Beijing. I watched Funny Face :D and played a little Centipede, and some of....Yesterday Once Again? It was a movie with Andy Lau and Sammi Cheng. I love them together :D

I was picked up at the Chengdu airport by a volunteer from Sichuan University, who told me to call him Shawn. His real name is something else completely, but I can't quite remember it right now. My roommate should also be coming in soon. Ashley Bell friended me on Facebook, so I take it as a sign that she's friendly. Please please please be friendly...
