I just spoke to my friend Liz on the phone from Guangzhou. We've arranged for her to come and pick me up from the airport when I land at 10:30pm local time--we're both sure I'll be a little disoriented. She teaches English to local school children and has invited me to go to school with her while I'm there. I'm REALLY excited about this! And she has a lot of friends who are teaching as well--they're from all over the world.
I still have two weeks to finish up planning. I've roughly figured out where I'm going, and how I might get there. Now I'm on the hunt for decent places to rest my head.
Next step is to have some Chinese food with a friend before I go. Believe it or not--I'm not a big fan. I know, it begs the question, "Then why would I go to China for a month?". And my answer is--why not?
