    Not a YouTube video but a NY Times feature on Chengdu

    I sure hope the weather holds. Looks like lighting. Either way it’ll be fun as hell!

    guy looks like Natooke Larry circa 2044.

    Dammit, Ray. I was thinking that.

    Rick, you’re forgiven. I need to work on my post titles.

    It’s a film about an interesting character. It’s damn more interesting than ‘Rick: The guy who has an opinion on the internet’

    Oh, excuse me. I didn’t notice that you’d listed two. The kit lens I’m after. Fingers crossed for someone not wanting that.

    One thing that I must point out: Crime rates in the US have been falling since 1991.

    To be honest, I didn’t bother to read on after this glaringly false ‘fact’.

    Any chance I can take the lens on it’s own?

    From what I hear, the nice bikes that get stolen don’t stay in town. It’ll more likely turn up in Chongqing.

    That being said, I’ll keep my eyes peeled and best of luck!

    I’ll be there. Finally I can use my cycling for good and not evil.

    It’s fine in my flat. Rick, you’ve got an experiment to do this afternoon.

    So you were two dudes hanging out in just your red underwear?

    Hey Mike, I’m moving out of my two bed place on the 20th, and my landlord is interested in having more foreigners stay. It’s not in the areas that you specified, but it’s right on Metro Line 2. It’s 96 SQM and the rent is 2500 a month.

    Here’s the location.

    I will sort myself out with a bike as soon as I get there. Cycling has also been a very good way for me to explore new places.

    You can also rent one for the evening, and I believe that they don’t charge you as you’ll be in their company the entire time.

    May i ask you why you consider living in France instead of UK would be better?

    Yes. My problem with the UK is that it filled with very grey and cynical people, like myself. People who sit and complain about how everything is going to shit and then make no attempt to try and fix it, so that they may continue to moan and have the ability to say ‘I told you so’ as things get progressively worse. The privatisation of national institutions like the NHS and Royal Mail means that the public have no say in their operation, and many fear that this will inevitably lead to price rises. Politics are annoying as the fascists gain more and more traction, no one can work together and people go back on promises. The weather is grey and gloomy and constantly ‘mild’, meaning there’s no snow in the winter and no sun in the summer.

    I just don’t see what it has to offer.

    Natooke’s Friday night group bike ride. 8pm every Friday. It’s got beers, bikes, beats, and bananas. It’s a great time.

    Gov.uk has all the information you’ll need. I’m not sure of your situation, so you can spend a bit clicking around this section of the website.

    There’s also a UK consulate in Chongqing. Though I’d consider just living in France, as the UK’s pretty shit in my opinion.

    It take at least two hours by bus to get from Chengdu to Emei. So if you want to visit Chengdu in the evening, I’d find a place to crash if I were you.

    I use both Astrill and Strong VPN. Both of them are pretty good, and you only have to pay a small subscription. Astrill’s more reliable than strong though. When the internet gods are displeased and speeds are slow all around, Strong fails to connect, when Astill is just slow.

    Excellent tracks, and exactly what I needed on a Sunday evening.

    Does anyone know where I can hear some live jazz in Chengdu? I had started going to the Booze Blues events at Here We Go shortly before they closed their doors in the Poly Centre – so perhaps that’s still a thing elsewhere?

    Cool.

    Loving the chill vibe. I find it a lot less repetitive than I do reggae. Wikipedia said Errol Thompson is the dude, though I don’t know if the genre has evolved since then.
