Nimen hao! Wo bu shi zai tushuguan!

Oh, by the way, I'm going to China tomorrow.

I'm going to Shanghai for work for the next ten days. I probably would have blogged this earlier, except that I've been insanely busy with a) work, then b) having no power/internet at home, then c) running around like a chicken with my head cut off, preparing for this trip. And d) more work.

But here we go, finally! I leave at 6am tomorrow. The flight is 18 hours long, and actually requires me to fly east (Atlanta) before flying west (Shanghai) in order to ultimately get to The East¹. I am, on the advice of my coworker, packing Tylenol PM in order to sleep on the plane. It shouldn't be too much of a problem, though, because I have plenty of sleep to catch up on. I got somewhere between 3 and 4 hours of sleep last night (due to packing, nerves, and the combination of packing and nerves that causes you to hop out of bed because you've been lying awake and just remembered another thing you needed to pack), and I'll probably get about 4.5-5 tonight, too, since I have to get to the airport tomorrow. So if I don't sleep on the plane, I will be ready for a huge breakdown right about the time that I land in a country where I know no one and don't speak the language. It is a very exciting prospect.

Anyway, nervous, excited, nervous again, and sleep-deprived. It is very exciting to be me right now!

Watch this space (or this space) for pictures!

I don't know if I'll be there long enough to form any very sophisticated opinions, but I'll do what I can!
