Posted:Woah!!! Imagine spinning next to the Sky Temple or in Tienanmen Square!!!!

Anything, is Beijing something like 80miles wide? Imagine having to organise a meet! biggrin


Why let your body be a temple? When it can be a theme park?

Posted:Okay, just booked my trans-manchurian ticket smile
I'll be arriving in Beijing on the 10th, probably will be a bit f*cked for a day having just spent near on 7 days on the train (damn that short russian visa!), but will be ready for a play from the 11th onwards. Time and a place, anyone? I'll probably be in town for a week or so.

Posted:Thanks for the offer duh. How long are you going to be there for? I'm just travelling at the moment, but I'll probably be back in China to teach sometime next year, and was thinking about taking a trip up to Mongolia then. Too scared of the cold to do it anytime soon smile

Totally failed to get myself organised in BJ and have left now, though may well be back sometime next year (again) as I have a couple of friends teaching there now. The trans-manchurian was really good, definately a much more interesting way of getting back to europe. I'm already considering doing the journey again someday. You can check out my experience of it at:

www.travelpod.com/members/mrconfused

There'll probably be a bit more to go up in the next couple of days. Yay for blatant self-promotion!

LazyAngel (Guy, I think - we've met at one gathering or another, I'm sure), I'll let you know if I'm heading down that way. Plans are a little vague at present.

Posted:Hey, it's only been just over a year so far! I should be back in 2008. Maybe wink

Thanks for the offer, but I should be okay to sort out the job. I've already been in contact with one company that have schools all over the country.

Back to doing whatever it is I do all day. Honestly, I've been travelling for a year and I still don't know exactly how I manage to fill my day...

Posted:well, I'm in guangzhou for one more day, then heading down to Shenzhen until 2nd feb, then up yangshuo for about a week before heading down to guangzhou for a few more days, then back up to Yangshuo. After that, who knows? Maybe Beijing, but it depends how much money I have: Guangzhou is fun but expensive!

Posted:hey, any jugglers or spinners in Beijing from now till around mid-september? I'm staying in Houhai and have been practising in the nearby parks some evenings/early mornings, if anyone would care to join me? smile

Also, I'm thinking of doing some photo-shoots around well-known landmarks with juggers/spinners/anything else colourful, maybe on the big pedestal things in one of the temples (I'm bad at being specific), on Tiananmen Sq (police permitting, though a group of jugglers should be fine) or even on the Great Wall...

lemme know
