Yeah Sanya Sun
First off, H and i flew 4 hrs to the island province of Hainan, to the resorty town of Sanya, aka the Hawaii of China. We stepped off the plane and stepped into a steamy hot dark night that stunk of salty fish.
Sadly that was pbly the most heat we were to get in our wk there. We only got one sunny hot day, which we exploited laying around on the sun. i was hammering through Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything, which is a really cool super readable book about everything from quarks to the dinosaurs.
Then i oddly came down w/ a fever, and thought i was freezing to death while strolling on the beach. "Jesus, noone else is wearing shorts! It's too bloody cold!" It was a nice time to chill out and shiver and sweat in bed while my gf drank beer beside me.
When i wasn't bedridden we saw some local sights and the time seemed to slip through the hourglass faster than it should've.
