And then I went for a walk back to the subway station. I had eaten dinner with Wang Xiaojie and her family, and no taxi would take a laowai, but the little walk turned out to be a nice one, in spite of the insane amount of people.
... and nice buildings, so it really wasn't that bad after all
Back in the Subway station (or Hell, as I like to call it). I realized were all the Chinese people I never see around Haidian are - in the same carriage as myself today, of course.
... Oh, and the Chinese workforce have no safety net. Really, they don't. These window washers were hanging by ropes off a sky scraper.
Back home to the nicely painted man hole covers. Now time for a nap on the couch.
Eventful day. So much happened that I even forgot my newly purchased little Chinese flag at Xiao Wang's. Crap. I was so tired when I got home, I fell asleep on the couch. I usually do that in times of need, and I probably could've slept through the night if I didn't have to make ready for the world's most wonderful sister arriving tomorrow. God, I'm so looking forward to seeing her again! :D
