Odds and Ends

Here are some random happenings of the last month, told through photographs.

The other fellows and I have been treating ourselves to this full-body massages once in a while. They do all sorts of crazy stuff, and are not shy about getting under you. I usually leave more sore than when I first walked in... Hmm, on second thought, maybe I should stop going...

I think this picture speaks for itself.

There seems to be an imbalanc
e in supply of taxis in Changsha. When I need to take one from Yali, I have to add a cushion of another thirty minutes or so just to find one. Here, we waited in this lonnnnng line outside the train station for one, but there were no taxis in sight... I think I could start a very profitable business by filling this void in the transportation market.

Personal Accomplishments

While trying to do a roll onto Chacey's bed, I somehow ended up doing a headstand for the first time ever. Pretty proud of that. =)

I haven't been able to touch my toes for many many years (since middle school??). It became Chacey's personal mission for the past month that I improve my flexibility. Here, you can see the progress I made over a span of about two weeks. Yes, I was that inflexible (see top notch). Unfortunately, recent efforts to retain this new-gained flexibility have been half-hearted, and the distance between my fingers and my toes have started to climb again.
