Our double room at the Holiday Inn North Chongqing looked good, but was freezing cold - something was off about the airconditioning (we didn't investigate, just turned the thing off). No wifi in the room, just a (slow) cable internet connection.
The travel center advertised in our room didn't exist, according to the receptionists, whose English was poor. When we showed them a picture of the sign in the elevator indicating that there should at least be a ticketing center on the ground floor with them, they waved us to the tea shop. There were indeed two very bored-looking staff members focusing on their computers in the tea shop. They didn't speak any English, would not book train or bus tickets, and could not help organize a small trip in or around Chongqing.
A savvy traveler will find his way in Chongqing, just don't expect much help from the Holiday Inn North.

They offered soda but ONLY Coke and they took the glass to the back and brought back out to you, filled with their mystery Coke. We both had a little bit. I've never seen a country live on Coke before - no Diet Coke, very little Sprite, no Dr Pepper or anything like that - ALWAYS COKE. We should buy stock in Coke.
After eating we went downstairs and just ...
... and endured a harrowing taxi ride, with luggage piled on our legs, to the hotel. We were only spending the one night here as we departed the next day from the docks. Our hotel was fantastic though and I would have happily stayed longer. On the day of departure we checked out of the hotel and headed straight to the docks with our luggage. Along the way we saw the many workers who were unloading or loading all sorts of bags and boxes onto trucks and cars parked along the ...
... matched the atmosphere of the boat: it was pouring down and very misty! All day! In fact, the whole way! We stopped at Zhang Fei Temple in the evening for a supper of delicious noodle soup. On our second full day on the boat we docked early at Zhongxian and were able to visit an island called Shibaozhai, a 220m high rocky buttress which has, grafted onto its side, a twelve-storey, bright-red pagoda which was built in 1819 called ...
... or the U.S. It makes sense, and to do anything less would be idiocy. The poorer the country, the more help it'll need--that's reality. But that doesn't excuse the response that Americans don't need similar help during a crisis. Japan's economy is 1/3 of the U.S.'s--a rich country, richer per capita than many Western nations. Does that mean we should ignore it? Of course not, and the U.S. didn't, and neither did other nations.
Before you criticize America and its ...
... word, which makes me feel great. That now includes the word for "hanging oneself" as I accidentally learned as I looked up another word.
The other day Alexi said the word for sugar cane (ganzhe) in front of a sophomore student, who then looked at me and told me I should study Chinese like Alexi has. To his credit, he's been learning quickly--he engages in Chinese when he can and has me, Demon, Bill, and others to help him along the way. He's ...
