It's Winter Break Mate and the Packs Packed!

Hey Hey and a Big G'Day to ya Mate its Winter Break and the Pakks Packed! I have a ticket for tomorrow nights sleeper train to the beautiful coastal city of Xiamen. Here colonial buildings supposedly rein supreme. I'll spend a few days with Daniel and Alexa in Xiamen exploring the architecture and back streets, taking photos, eating mountains of sea food and beerin' it up before they take the big steel bird to Thailand.

From Xiamen the only plan for now is to take local buses to the south west corner of Fujian to a Minority Village where several families still live together in huge round minority houses and dress and live as they have for the past several hundred years. Tell me that's not a great plan! From there I really have no idea. I guess I'll just allow the Big Noodle of Life to take me where it will. Beers and Noodles to ya...shane The soundtrack to tonight's entry is bought to you by another MSN/iPod '80's Metal Night' spent with my buddy Aussie Crusty who has been teaching on Hanian Island. He's also packed and is ready to head west into Yunnan's splendour! From there he'll head back to Aus and return to the great Melbourne Pub scene to not only thrash about on stage but thrash about to Slayer, WASP and Sodom in the next several months. Lucky bugger! Crusty my friend, when you first reach the front steps to the The Tote remember to drop to your knees and bow before the worlds ultimate Music Venue...

The Tote Hotel my friends, where Beer Meets Rock!
