Hey, my VPN works!
Well, this is where it gets interesting. Mainland China : Day 1. I arrive by ferry to Zhuhai, and immediately get accosted by cab drivers. Having done such a job, I waive them off, and find a queue of 70 people deep in the "real" cab queue. I start walking. I had the terminal write the venue P.K.14 was playing at in Chinese, thankfully, and I start asking around. Nobody has any idea what I'm talking about.
Finally, I reach a young kid who, after about 20 minutes of laughing and sort-of getting our points across, he tells me he will bring me there, or at least, close. Now, I know the number one rule in foreign travel is to not follow anyone you don't know, but I know good humans, and he was one. As we talk, he calls the bus station, and we keep heading towards the place. It was a 30 minute walk. He says cabs are hard to get now as it's business hour. I see someone getting out of a taxi, and I grab it. He's amazed. Very difficult, he says. He gets in with me. He communicates with the driver, and we get to the venue. He will not let me pay for the cab. He gets out with me, and follows me to the door. We say goodbye. I have an AMAZING dinner with P.K.14, which they pay for. The venue, half the size of the Empty Bottle. This band is spectacular. China proper, begins. Tomorrow, Shenzen. Oh, and they have room in their van for me.
More soon. Goodnight.
