Hee, I got to see my little schnuzzle bunny today. For I -

BRAVED THE WILDS OF JINSHAN AND LIVED TO TELL THE TALE.

*deep breaths*

Okay see, when I travel to Jinshan (which is way down southwest of Shanghai proper, about 2 hours), it's either by company car or IN the company of a coordinator who knows the area like the back of her hand. *Hats off to Veronica*  But today? I did it all by myself!

....okay, Veronica helped. A LITTLE. Seriously.

.......OKAY, so it went like this:

Me: *texts Veronica* "Hi V! Could you please tell me where the long distance bus station is?"
Veronica: *texts back* "Are you going alone?"
Me: "Yes."
Veronica: *silent for two long minutes* "It's near Jingjiang subway station. Show the taxi driver this: *insert address in Chinese*. I've asked in it to take you directly to the main gate of the bus station.
Me: "Aww, thank V. You're the best!"
Veronica: "Call me if you need me to speak to the driver."
Me: "Will do but it should be ok. Thanks V!"
Veronica: "Do you know which bus to take?"
Me: *starts to type*
Veronica: *sends text* "Go to the first window and show the ticket lady this: *insert request for Jinshan bus in Chinese*. She'll point you at the right bus.
Me: *Wow, thanks again V."
Veronica: You can text me any time if you get lost."
Me: Hey now--
Phone: *rings*
Me: Hello?
Veronica: "Are you in the taxi? Do you need me to translate?"
Me: "I'm just flagging one down now. I think I'm good."
Veronica: "Just call me if you need help!"
Me: "Will do." *gets into taxi. Shows address. Taxi driver says the tunnel near it and I recognize it - we're all good.*

*one hour later*

Veronica: *texts* "Are you in JInshan? Did you find L?"
Me: "I'm good! I swear! Thank you for all your help!
Veronica: "Not at all!"

....and people wonder why I adore and cling to my coordinators.....  THEY KNOW ME TOO WELL.


Why was I in JInshan, btw? To visit one of my besties, L. She brought Remy to meet me at the bus station - she's got him leash-trained already and he walks so nicely. :)  I always find that very impressive with cats, especially young ones. But Remy's so active, regular walks are good for him. :)  We had Korean BBQ and did some window-shopping. It was a good way to break the nothingness that I have been doing lately. :)
