It is 6:20 am in Tai Zhou. I am sitting in a 5 star hotel on the 23rd floor in the party and convention center area listening to a rooster crow. He has been crowing since 4 am.
Next I am boarding a train, coach class, for a 4 hour train ride to Shanghai. I wonder how many roosters will be on the train.
Caused a sensation in the dining room last night. I ordered room service later afternoon and was not hungry. They were very upset only Big Daddy was eating. Many people came to ask just one. I can see they are very regimented and easily upset when things go differently than they expect.
Off to breakfast. At least they have croissant and butter from New Zealand. WTF.
