March 07, 2007
Quite a day. I met with Wing over breakfast, Euphemia having already set out on her travels around agents in Chongqing, does she never stop? Anyway, we went on a mad drive (they are all mad drives in Chongqing) to the North side of the city and had a high-powered meeting that could lead to some really interesting and possibly exciting work.
Another mad dash across town (lanes? what lanes? What do the arrows on the carriageway mean? Not which direction to go that’s for sure) back to the hotel for lunch with a senior guy from the British Council, more interesting stuff to take in.
Another mad dash back north – Euphemia having told the driver we were in a hurry … WHAT? you mean those other drives were normal… Oh Yes. We did at least stop once for a red light. I gave a presentation to some industry people and also a large group of students at the back. One of them is planning to come to us next year to study E2BM. In the rush to get back to the airport I seem to have left my recharger there.
Flight to Shanghai, managed to mark two more of my ES3A7 scripts on the plane (now only 4 more to do) and then finished Knots and Crosses, the first of the Rhebus books. I’ll review it when I’ve worked out what I think as I’m not sure yet. It hasn’t appealed to me as much as Steven Saylor’s Gordianus books.
Tomorrow I am being taken around SH by a lady called Jaimey from the office of the guy who arranged todays power-meeting. Then interviewing some students.
Euphemia said she will take me to a good restaurant in the evening (she needs a more delicately flavoured meal than the HOT HOT HOT Sichuan style meal we had last night).
If I can get my notepad charged then I’ll post again, Oh yes, one final thing for Mark (sorry couldn’t find a more informative image)
