I have to pack now, and try not to forget anything important. T-shirt, check. Shorts, check. Camera, check. Smile, check. Seems like I have everything!
A few plane rides later I am a little south of Beijing, in a freezing dust-bowl called Jinan. The city is the capital of the province of Shandong and the population could be anywhere between 4 and 6+ million people. The welcome hoo-ha includes a banquet with the big-wigs. Great food is a great way to interrupt great work.
The accommodation we are in is part of the old campus and it’s prime real estate. Hence the reason the university has sold it off and isn’t really interested in maintaining anything. The short version of the list includes several electrical power problems. On the plus side, we have some internet access and no-one has died yet of electrocution from the wiring and water mix!
So anyway, we go to work at the new campus. It’s a half hour bus ride that costs Y2 and one cannot get change, we must have the exact amount. Fine apart from the fact that everyone hoards their Y1 coins and notes. Roads in China are, as you might expect. There’s a brave driver or two out there.
Running Bull Productions proudly presents 2 nights of back-to-back screenings of the digital impressions slide-show trilogy, including the première of a Tibetan travel tale. Following on from where we left off in chunks of China, the third part of the trilogy takes on altitude, a different culture in far-flung lands, and concludes the story.
I hope you can make it on either night, Friday the 9th of March or Saturday the 10th of March, from 6pm at my house. The program for each evening is :

Do they? Or is it the other way around, staff support computers? Or staff support other staff, who in turn support computers? Alternatively, customers supporting themselves and turning to friends in-the-know, when the so-called support don’t help.
Recently I have experienced both, a crap customer service and the polar opposite. This is such a ridiculous side-by-side comparison, it’s hilarious.
