Today is where my trip turned work: morning and mid-afternoon meetings were punctuated by a frenzied attempt to ensure we were actually ready for the second session. We set ourselves the small challenge of finding a local restaurant that had a menu in English (it seemed as practical a way to decide where to eat as any) for dinner. Surrounded by happy kids and fussing parents, we drank honey-ginger-chrysanthemum tea and ate well (sichuan chicken and curried prawn).

On the downside, I am now officially fighting off a bug. While this afforded an exciting trip to find cold-and-flu drugs at the local supermarket, I could do without the fever or the cough when trying to think this hard. Bah, humbug.

Edit: Also, ooh lightning. And thunder. Yay!
