The new job is going well so far. Challenging. Interesting. Good people.
This week I visited three different cities, in different provinces, and attended six banquets. It's now shortly after 1am on a Friday night and I just arrived home after a day of long meeting in Chinese, banquet, an exhibit tour on renewable energy, and five company tours. Saw some amazing things (like how the blades for wind power turbines are made, solar powered hot water heater construction, and how geothermal heating units work) that I'm excited to share and help develop. Another banquet. Drove for three hours of a six hour drive home, on American-built highways with toll booths situated regularly, then napped in the backseat while my interpreter/colleague drove the rest of the way and chatted with our coworkers.
It's good to be home. Now I'm going to get some sleep before getting up for class at 9am. This is a school weekend. NEXT weekend I get to sleep in.
