Well, that was a surprise. I thought I would be staying in Nanjing and that YangZhou was a suburb but it seems to be about an hour & a half drive away! Note to self: must check map!
I had an overnight flight from Chennai, consisting of a hop to Singapore then Nanjing which meant, again, very little sleep. My host took me for breakfast about 9 am and all I wanted to do was sleep after that but he was already keenly asking me at what time I wanted to have lunch, 12? I managed to push him back to 1 pm which meant I got about 3 hours sleep but still feel like I need a lot more! Lunch was a fabulous Chinese buffet and my host insists that I take advantage of the food while here - its very difficult not too and I think my hosts are enjoying the opportunity to dine with me on expenses!
As a nice touch the hotel in Chennai insisted on taking a photo of me and sent it to me via email today.....
