Where I stayed
live house hostel
All safe and well and just begining to think about the gig tonight I think...we've booked into our hotel and have been booking our tickets back to Shenzhen for the way home...I really should stop spending time in an internet den and get out there and explore Changsha!!!
so we got ready for the gig...tried to cool off in our hotel rooms for a while...it's still extremely hot! we went out for tea just around the corner in a nice restaurant ...this meal's speciality was duck...which is quite nice! I liked it better this time than the first time I tried it on this trip as it wasn't as fatty this time! I think it's a little like chicken but a thicker or stronger flavour...?
then it was almost time for the second to last gig.
The gig was at Changsha live house which was a cool place ...cool pictures on the walls and murals and stuff...the lighting and set up and stage were cool...the sound guy wasn't great but the show still went well! My new favourite song is Forget about it....which is a new one! it's pretty cool...
We stuck around the bar for a while ...and then I talked to someone who told me that there were markets just up the street...woot! I was out of there!
Ted and I went to see if we could discover them...and we searched them out until we found them! first we went into a game arcade and played a drumming game which Ted was really good at and I was beyond terrible at...and it was on easy/medium too! it was the hugest game arcade I'd ever seen...Yol, Maddy and Harley would have loved it!!!
(Speaking of Yolanda...Disregard this paragraph if you are unfamiliar with the question of Yolanda's caterpillar! somehow the subject of your caterpillar question came up...and Ted and Josh came up with solutions! Josh thinks it would do a kind of reverse U-turn...Ted things that it would go around/under the twig/branch and go back that way...what do you reckon?!?!?)
So..after the arcade we went down the street and checked out the goods ...which were pretty good :) lots of cool earrings and jewellery!
Then back to bed...and train in the morning after a sleep in! I liked Changsha even though we weren't there for that long! cool place!
