This post is about a rest day behind some orange curtains in Cheng’anpu. There’s a cheesy poster on the wall.
My hotel room has orange curtains.
They make everything orange in the room. I like it, because it feels warm.
I have spent a whole day in this orange light, writing my blog, sorting my pictures, watching a TV show, waiting for my foot to heal up a bit.
There was an episode when I went out to get some water, though. I was shocked by the outside world. How could Cheng’anpu be so shockingly un-orange? Everything seemed as if it had been dipped in blue. Or maybe I was wearing blue shades?
It was shocking, shocking, I tell you!
Quickly, I rushed back into my orange sanctuary.
So I’m laying on my bed looking at this masterpiece on the wall.
And I guess at least the sheep and the cows and the horses and the grass and the trees – they’re all orange. That makes it alright in my mind. My foot still hurts. The orange curtains of Cheng’anpu haven’t helped my foot.
And then the phone rings: it’s Haozi from Beijing.
He says the camera repair place told him that my lens will be ready in a day or two.
I look at the poster with the orange animals, and I want to sing it to them:
N O W T H A T ‘ S S O M E G O O D N E W S !
I think I’ll continue walking tomorrow.

I don't if the winter of kantou is grey or not, I always stay in my room,sit in front of my computer,write and write and write.
