Right about now, I should be in transit to the hostel in Chengdu.  When I got into the JET Program, my two big travel goals were China and Korea.  Korea I was able to hit very early on (see these old post on LJ), but China took some time.  I had really wanted to go to HK, Shanghai or Beijing; but the girl I’m traveling with has already been there, so we compromised and will be going to Chengdu and Chongqing in the Sichuan area.  Spicy food and pandas…that’s all I need.  Also, we have a 6hr layover in HK, so I’ll get a small HK bonus.  Back on May 7!
