Fuzhou Trip

I’m all set to go see Ryan in Fuzhou on Monday. We’re both working this weekend, so Monday was the soonest typhoon-free day we could get.

Ryan suggested we stay at a hotel this time. Last time I went to Fuzhou, I stayed at his apartment. I don’t mind getting a hotel since he lives with too many roommates. It will be nice to have some privacy.

I don’t know why, but there weren’t a lot of hotel options. Maybe there’s a Chinese holiday that they don’t celebrate in Hong Kong. Nothing’s going on here, but something is taking up all the hotels in Fuzhou. Or maybe there just aren’t that many.

Our options were higher end 4 & 5 star hotels – like the Ramada, Sheraton and Westin – or cheaper dive hotels – Days Inn, Howard Johnson. There was even a Super 8. I had no idea they were in China.

We decided to aim high because why not. I live in a tiny Hong Kong apartment with 2 other people and he lives in a tiny Chinese house with 4 other people – and the occasional visiting girlfriend. A few days in a decent hotel will be a nice change of pace.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
