Being stuck in Shanghai with no friends and no money and only very shaky Internet access?
Hmm, let's try again. Positive thinking.
Well, this should be my last Thanksgiving in China - that's something to celebrate.
It's a pity that my favourite holiday of the year (like Christmas, but without all the baggage - as I just remarked to my pal The British Cowboy) will have to go uncelebrated by me this year - but I hope the rest of you are enjoying the excuse for a bit of overindulgence.
I suppose I could go for a turkey dinner somewhere when I'm back in Beijing at the weekend, but.... well, I'm a stickler for observing holidays on the right day - alas.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!
