British Student Visa Procured in Shanghai

I picked up my visa from the British
. I can enter and leave as I please until January 2006. My friend ZHU Jia happened to be there picking up passports for some chinese students to study in Britain for the school she works for. Next we need to apply for DeDe's visa, which will be more difficult since she wants to be allowed to work.

Doored on my bike!

I was doored pretty hard today while riding my bike to the Zhong Shan Park metro station. Some girl opened up her car door at the last minute, which caught my bike, and I went flying over the handlebars. My bike is still rideable but needs some repairs. I'm sore but mobile. Please look before you open a door on a road filled with cyclists.

British Consular Officers in Shanghai

The British Consular Officers in Shanghai are still being jerks. They accepted by application for a student visa but intimated I was a liar, made fun of my name, and otherwise made things difficult.
