I paid for 10 minutes of internet and no one has sent me any emails so i guess I'll just wait out the clock. Or at least write a little bit. China is nice. Beijing anyway. Today I walked around the Summer Palace. Which was lovely. Positioned on a big lake in the northwest part of the city limits. I got there in a bit of a huff because I had intended to go to the Chinese National Museum today. I arrived to find it would be closed for expansion and renovation until 2010. I didn't feel like waiting so I hopped the subway to a cab to the Palace. So I was stressed about time and doing everything and getting to see it all, but it soon melted away and I didn't give a shit about being late because what do i have to be late for? the other museums closing, yes but you can only do so much in a day.
Then I got back and walked around. Ho, i went to get my camera fixed because it's busted. big mistake. I distinctly heard 180 yuan. bill said 480 yuan. I had him unfix it, then it was more broken than when i brought it in, so i just said fuck it and had him refix it. and i'm glad i did because it pissed him off. anyway, ten minutes is almost up, so i'm going to save this and go.
