First Day Back in Guangzhou, China

Hello from Guangzhou, China!

Shenzhen checkpoint, on the way to Guangzhou

It sure is glad to be back in this corner of the world called Asia. It’s been to long. Just walking the streets and seeing 90 percent of the women in shape and not tatted up is a pleasure to the eyes. I do not have plans to get to deep into the Game until I’ve stabilized myself and have gotten my own pad though. For the time being, I’m staying in a hotel provided by my company. I don’t really care to be in the proximity of so many foreigners, but living off of the company’s dime and getting free breakfast is nothing to complain about. I just hope that it’s good.

Although I’m happy to be here, my journey has started on some bullshit. My phone decided to brick on me, and downloading the repair tool is taking an age. If I do eventually complete the download, there is still a chance that I won’t be able to repair the phone since Google is blocked here without a VPN. I am sure there has to be a way, but losing all of that information, my settings, and my apps absolutely sucks.

I feel like I am getting that Guangzhou sickness too. I had some delicious food (which I assume to have been chicken) last night for about a buck fifty American (nine RMB). As soon as I got back to my hotel room, I felt a cough coming on, as well as churning in my stomach. Another thing I will have to fight through.

To try to get into a better mood, I did some morning calisthenics with the Creed soundtrack on in the background. Chest and abs today. Tomorrow, I’ll hit back and legs. I don’t have access to a gym, and likely won’t until the end of the month, but I will make do with what I have like Kali Muscle. Good thing that I packed a heavy-ass luggage. Maybe I’ll see if there are any Chinese Hyphy-Food recipes that I can look into.

Anyway, back to the hustle. I have to undergo some training today, and while I am looking forward to getting started, I am in no way looking forward to spending time with foreigners aside from that which is absolutely necessary. This will likely become easier once I have my own place.
