Will give a full report when I leave but currently in Chengdu and coming from Indonesia im really not enjoying the place. The language barrier is hard, its not that the people are horrible, its just in other Asian countries if you smile you get one back and maybe some interest they seem more serious here. If I smile, I get an open mouthed stare and eyes following me as I walk away as if im an alien. Today I said excuse me to a women and she literally shit herself pulled a face and walked off as fast as her legs would carry her. Taxi drivers also speak zero English so using google maps and translate is tiring, thats when my VPN doesnt crash. Everything just seems hard work here. I went to a lot of aggravation and expense to get this visa but time is also precious. Im thinking of either travelling south to Dali (anyone been there) spend some time and then travel by train/bus across to Laos (probably beautiful place but bad for dating and illegal from what I read?) and then Thailand. Or Fuck it all off and book a flight straight to Thailand. Looking to get peoples thoughts/ideas/suggestions?? Thanks.
