The boonies were interesting. And uncomfortable. On Monday I made two grave mistakes: I over estimated the number of tampons in my possession (6) and also overestimated the number of tampons in rural Anhui (0, or 6 if you count mine). We slept in the dorms on the elementary school campus. The bathroom was a concrete block with slits in the floor in a far corner of the grounds. So. Many. Maggots.
I needed a break from Shanghai, now I'm so happy to be back. I will try and post photos and a more reflective entry about my trip this weekend (three days off - woohoo!).
