Reflections on China - part 3 - thing's I'm looking forward to in NZ


Reflections on China - part 3 - thing's I'm looking forward to in NZ

After talking about the things I will and won't miss about China, it comes to the things I'm looking forward to when I get home.

Strange as this will sound to those who know, I really want a hash-brown. Funny because I don't like Potato but still. I had a craving once before for Potato when I had been hunting for four days and hadn't eaten a lot. All I wanted was a big plate of mashed Potato. It didn't take me long to remember I didn't like it but again I still wanted it. I wonder why I crave the very food I don't like? hmmm maybe I'll ponder this more. I'm off topic though.

Coffee, oh sweet sweet coffee! I haven't had a good espresso coffee in over three weeks. New Zealand really is the land of good coffee. I've heard people say that before but now I realise just what I've been missing. I paid $50 RMB ($15 NZD) for black coffee from one of those push button machines you have in the staff room or at the petrol station - it was black because my acting skills let me down and they didn't understand I wanted a white coffee hahaha)

My own bed! although I still won't get to sleep in it for a week as I'm away again as soon as I'm home. I leave on another flight three hours after I land back in NZ. The beds in China are as hard as rock. I like a good firm bed but not a wooden plank like many of the hotel beds seem to be.

I'm looking forward to seeing Katherine. It's rather tough trying to keep in touch when the internet is so flakey over here. The time difference doesn't make it super easy either. I've had no end of trouble trying to keep in touch with my beautiful girl and I'll finally get to see her again after about 6 weeks I think?
