I came bk to BJ a day earlier than planned. Decided not to tell my boss or editor about this, so as to avoid getting called into the office. Worked from home to finish the race article, and figure that i got enough other extra material in Guizhou to keep everyone happy. But, i pbly coulda just asked them if it was ok to stay.
Anyhow, i don't feel guilty so much, but not exactly noble, either.
