March 10, 2007
Its now 11:30pm , just arrived in Hong Kong after a flight from Wuhan that nearly didn’t happen and a drive from Shenzhen via two very slow border controls.
Today’s recruitment exhibition in Wuhan was really busy. Its a shame that a great many of the potential students won’t be able to afford the cost. Thanks to Alan and Shirley from the International Office (China staff) and of course to Euphemia who deserves more money, more time off and more of everything.
Going back in time to my last posting … Friday was a flight from Shanghai (Pudong airport is a ridiculous distance from downtown and is served by a super fast, super expensive MAGLEV that doesn’t go anywhere useful, so isn’t used – Taxi is the only option but the roads are incredible congested so you should allow over an hour to be on the safe side…. In the afternoon visited some agents and in the evening went to a popular Wuhan restaurant – more to come in a later post.
Back further… on Wednesday in Shanghai was given a tour by a nice lady called Jaimey and in the afternoon.. guess what?..... agents. Finished up in a restaurant in the chic eating dining/bar area.
Must finsih now as my battery is fading fast. Hopefully my charger will arrive in HK on Monday
