... the city), and then the second to last night was just a regular all-nighter for old time's sake (including a pretty sensational beer pong victory for Alvin and I), and then I've just arrived back at the apartment (currently 2:41am) from Wudaokou again - it pretty much exactly followed the pattern of several of our nights out here, with a pizza and beer at Steps, followed by table football and then a club or two, where most of ...
