A week ago everything was ok, over, finito; a week later for various reasons, the chains have to be pulled tighter again. Just like that.
Life in China has definitely been more interesting than back in the US, not the least because it's oo often like an arbitrary joke that I don't know how else to react, except to laugh.
What great misfortune of you having to be Chinese?!
Oh well, I am Chinese. I'm stuck with it, all of it, and there' s no running away from any of it.
To see the sick humor in a rotten situation and continue to be amused, I think, is one of the few survival skills left for the Chinese. For the game is not over, and the show must go on.
