About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Beijing It Is!

We've been here a couple days. Turns out we have to wait a couple more for our train to Wudangshan. It's a twenty-some hour trip. We could've left earlier but the only class seats available were something called "Hard Seat." Even the train's website said these seats were basically Hell and you'd be lucky to arrive with your possessions and sanity intact.

Ergo we got "Soft Sleeper" class seats. Better than a sharp stick in your eye.

So we've been exploring the neighborhood near our hotel. In the days to come we plan to visit Tiananmen Square and other famous spots. Cabrini and I have seen these places before but they are pretty cool in their own rights.

There are some interesting shops all around us. But this one caught my eye. From now on this is where i get my threads.
