After 6 years I must say farewell to my friends and colleagues at thyssenkrupp System Engineering in Shanghai.

My new China adventure will start soon!

Anyone who has ever been to a bank in China can relate to this. I just wasted 90 minutes of my life trying to do some simple transactions and now I must return tomorrow with an old passport to complete everything. Probably another 90 minutes lost.

After 19 years of marriage, happiness is the 21 year old Balvenie in my glass. πŸ₯ƒπŸ˜œ

So tonight my wife and I met my mother-in-law for dinner near our hotel. Afterwards we decided to walk my mother-in-law home and neither my wife or mother-in-law knew the way and had to rely on the only person who did not grow up here to lead the way!

Finally, some vacation time! Heading to Wuxi (my wife’s hometown) for a few days.

Let’s try again. Boarding for second time, let’s hope we make it to Shanghai.

I hope they can keep their Flux under control this time.

I got this email this morning. Looks like I can finally quit my job! 😜

I have no idea why, but after I came home from the Whisky L! Show, Benny decides to sit with her butt on my head!

This sunset was taken in Rizhao, Shandong Province back in August 2012. Not the best of photos, but not bad for an iPhone of the time and it appears I was leaning out of a taxi! @odd
