GUESS WHAT, DA ISN'T BLOCKED BY CHINA ANYMORE!! I TOTALLY DIDN'T KNOW THAT, LOLOLOL. unfFFFF, YES.
There is just too much to talk about that I don't even know where to begin...sklfjsd;l I'm in an internet cafe right now, I was actually able to get on the internet yesterday, but I was so busy answering emails that when I finally had time to write a journal, the computer shut off! And then I didn't have any more money to extend my time (plus it was like 1:00 AM and I had to get up early the next day), so I just walked back to the hotel.
Nini-land is so wonderful! Everywhere I turn, I see things that make me go "How cute! Wang-kun, takoi meelyi!!" Of course my definition of "cute" probably cannot be relied on, since I find things like rusty bicycles and Mao watches as cute. Ivan(Russia)'s influence on me is too strong...
I'm in a study abroad program right now with 23 other students. It is sort of a half-tour, half-lecture sort of program...
We'll be in China for over a month, so I'll be slow to answer emails/notes/comments for a while!! I've only been in China for 4 days so far, but it is so incredibly busy! Every day I am exhausted and I have to crawl the two blocks down to this internet cafe.
Since Livejournal is blocked by the Great Firewall of China (wtf, and so is Youtube too!! T__T No Hetalia comm and vids for me, I'm dying so badly right now..) I will try to update on my Fc2 blog here: pantwoblog.blog126.fc2.com/
I don't have any photos yet because this place doesn't have an USB ports open, but I'll see if I can hijack someone's laptop! I have so many photos I want to show, and all the merchandise I bought sdfjklsd uggggg I BOUGHT MATCHING COMMIE HATS FOR RUSSIA AND CHINA, AND A CUTE COMMIE POSTER, AND AUTHENTIC MAO'S LITTLE RED BOOK FROM 1969, ALL FOR MY ADORABLE WANG-KUN COMRADE (as you know, I will be cosplaying Ivan this year, and I will attack and molest any Wang Yao cosplayer that enters my radius). I haven't found a bookstore that sells manga yet though... IS THERE AN EQUIVALENT OF OTOME ROAD IN CHINA?!
I. NEED. CHEAP. DOUJINSHI. NNNFF. NAO.
Animals that I have never eaten before until these past three days: Donkey (tastes like roast beef), Lamb (it was cooked strangely well! everyone cleaned their plates XD), Fish HEAD (freaking huge head, 2/3 of the body). I'm looking forward to more surprises, Nini-kun, I'll take em all on!
Except for maybe scorpion, I'm not sure I can eat insects yet.ABOUT HETALIA CALENDAR ORDER FORMS:
DO NOT FEAR, I'VE RECEIVED THEM ALL SAFELY, BUT IT IS TAKING ME SO LONG TO GET TO THEM. It is always almost midnight by the time we get back from travelling/lectures, so I never have much time. Since I haven't been able to plug in my USB, I can't access the Excel file where I was organizing all orders, so I'm a little uncomfortable about working without being organized (since it's so important). I will try my best however, so please forgive me and extend your patience a little longer!!NINI, I LOVE YOU. OH YEAH, "NINI"(the Olympic mascot, I swear it's not a coincidence...) YOU ARE A BIGGER FAIL PERV THAN FRANCE. CHINESE MASCOTS ARE THE FREAKING BEST EVER. WHEN WE VISITED THE OLYMPIC STADIUM TODAY, NINI MASCOT STARTED HUGGING AND KISSING ALL THE GIRLS, AND THEN WHEN NINI PICKED UP A GIRL BRIDAL-STYLE, HIS HEAD FELL OFF AND YOU SAW AN OLD CHINESE MAN INSIDE. LOLOLOL. LOLOLOL. I WISH I GOT TO RECORD IT. NINI, YOU ARE TOO CUTE!! YOU ARE ALSO QUITE FAIL.
