I pulled my self together and made a new category containing everything I wrote on our trip to China (July 2007). You can find all entries in the sidebar named China trip July 2007 (the first entry can be found here if you want to read it in the right order).

28th July 2007 Beijing – Amsterdam – Copenhagen – Aalborg Woke up a little past 5.00am. C was already up after a coughing ride and I felt rested out anyway. I actually managed to pull out some quality sleep in the train. The extreme noise from the rumbling train was not enough to keep me [...]
27th July 2007 Yilan – Harbin – Beijing What a sucky night. C almost coughed her lungs up. At 2.30am we had to get up and stop C’s cough. I made some hot water that she breathed a bit of steam from, and also she drank a bit to soothe her worn throat. Sitting in [...]
26th July 2007 Yilan C woke me with some insane coughing and moving around in the apartment. She started munching down sunflower seeds and as always never closes the door to the bedroom. I later found out it was 5.30am, which to me is way too early. I was not to decide though, and soon [...]
25th July 2007 Yilan This will be the last post from China, as we’ll be going home tomorrow. Up at 6.30am. Not because I wanted to, but because C got the clean-crazy bug. She decided that this would be an excellent time to start sweeping the apartment and moving stuff around. Safe to say that [...]
24th July 2007 Yilan Up at 6.00am. C still has a sore throat and coughed through the night. She also insisted on keeping the window in the bedroom closed, as it would prevent draft. Nothing to keep you ill like a night of freezing. Guess she’s right. I sweated a while lot instead though, but [...]
23rd July 2007 Yilan Another cool nights of sleep. I’m still dizzy, but it doesn’t feel as bad as before. Not quite sure yet though, as I had done nothing but go to the toilet and sit in bed and write up on the last days doings. C went to eat breakfast at her parents [...]
22th July 2007 Gao Leng Woke up 30 minutes before C was ready to get up. I couldn’t sleep anymore, even though I badly needed the rest and didn’t sleep much or well that night. I put my lappie under my arm and headed down the stairs of the computer school and plugged her in. [...]
21th July 2007 Yilan – Gao Leng I slept ok again for the second night in a row. I’m still ill, so a good night’s sleep is essential. C had agreed to visit her sister’s house yet again today, so we had a bath and grabbed a taxi there. I had already turned down sightseeing [...]
20th July 2007 Yilan Slept like a baby for the first time in 3 days. Woke up and felt much better. The fever seemed to have gone, though C still thought I was a little too warm. I was dizzy as hell though and could feel that I had very little strength and endurance. I [...]
19th July 2007 Yilan I slept terrible. Fever dreams again but fortunately no overjoyed Ronaldinho. I dropped trying to sleep at 4.00am. I felt that bad. I was very warm, but couldn’t sweat. My head was spinning and I had an enormous headache. Now I had done my part to get some rest, and had [...]
18th July 2007 Harbin/Yilan 7.00am and we were awake. Actually I’ve been awake a number of times. I had slept just as bad as the day before and had feverish dreams to booth. Some people dream about monsters, dragons, devils, the undead, but I dream about……. Ronaldinho. Ok – he’s a cool soccer player, but [...]
17th July 2007 Harbin Slept like a rock. Or on one. The last statement being the more accurate. I felt like shit when I woke up. During the night and early morning I woke up many times and each time it felt like my back, neck, hips and shoulders were hit by a car. Sleeping [...]
16th July 2007 Harbin Up and about at 2.55am. Well, actually one Tour de France horny friend of mine woke us up earlier with some sms messages about some Dane being in the lead at the moment, but guess we had to get up and swat mosquitoes anyway. That’s a daily deed in C’s sister’s [...]
…. there have not been enough updates lately. I have some stuff, but not enough time to post or write. Busy traveling, eating, being ill and some other stuff. Hopefully I will get some time later this week.
15th July 2007 Yilan Felt better than yesterday, which may have something to do with my hangover the day before. We went to C’s parents to eat some breakfast and afterwards were on our way to a nun monastery. A cool spot right here in Yilan. As usually the houses and the area surrounding them [...]
14th July 2007 Yilan Hellooooooo hangover. Long time no see? Back to catch up on old memories are we, eh? I was wasted yesterday and it was my own fault. If I hadn’t been so set on getting C’s uncle’s respect at drinking, I could have faced another exciting day instead of spending the whole [...]
13th July 2007 Yilan Note: Pictures from this day can be found if you scroll down. After having a quick toothbrush and wash we found ourselves at C’s parent’s home for some breakfast. 8.15am C’s stepbrother and his brother-in-law showed up in a taxi (this time a real car if you can say that about [...]
12th July 2007 Yilan Note: Pictures from this day can be found if you scroll down. Up and about at 7.30am. C wanted to go to the nearby mountains for a walk, which I found pretty interesting. I haven’t had much contact with Chinese nature yet and this was a great chance to do so. [...]
11th July 2007 Yilan Note: Pictures from the market can be found by scrolling a bit down this page Not sure what time we woke up. C decided it was time, so I just went with the flow. Turns out she had a plan. That’s how things work out here. Either there is a hidden [...]
