Ava and I endured an 8-hour bus ride today from JingHong to JiangCheng. I last did the same trip with my parents, four years ago. The road seems less bumpy now, but we didn't get there any quicker. I used to live and work in JiangCheng, training local English teachers with VSO. I was hoping to meet up with some of them but, on arrival and after a dozen phonecalls, it seems only one teacher is in town. The rest are back in their hometowns celebrating Spring Festival with their families. And I've learned my best friend there is now serving a ten year prison sentence! Oh my!
