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.

πŸ›¬ Wheels down Shanghai. Only 4 hours late which is classed as on-time in China 😜

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.

Only in China can you board a flight on time, sit on the plane for an hour and then be told to disembark as there are air traffic control delays.
