We've got time off from work and we're heading to Hubei for a few days. Several of my students reacted with amusement when I told them that that's where I was going, so it's possible that Hubei doesn't actually exist and this is all a just a fun way to get foreigners to take 13 hour train rides for no reason.
The title of this post will make sense after I tell you where we're going in Hubei, but I don't want to ruin the surprise. So you'll have to wait until I return for the punchline.
I'll be gone until Thursday, and the blog will be dark until then. I won't be available by email or text message, but you can still reach me by phone if you need me. Dolla dolla bills y'all.
