I am finally packed and ready to go. It's hard to believe that this trip has been in the making for over a year. It's even harder to believe that it is finally here. I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't a bit nervous. No matter how many flights I take, countries I've visit and cultures explored I still get a bit jittery the night before. It's both exhilarating and nerve-wracking. Inevitably, I leave something that I was desperate not to forget. Oh well. As long as I have my paints, passport, camera and laptop I'm ready to go.
As a part of my preparation I studied Mandarin, which will no doubt fail me and watched Karate Kid (with Jaden Smith). Well, China. 在這裡，我來了 !
(Here I come)!
