Food. Now. We’re not moving till we get it.
It has been a week since we’ve slept in our new home. We’ve already had one village power cut which lasted 12 hours, another that lasted 20 minutes. We’ve also had 2 electricity trips because perhaps the house is unable to handle our city-like power usage.
My dad had a great idea: “I think you guys should sand the floorboard on the second floor. Sand and varnish.”
Our new home is in Pan Qu Village, which is in Ying Qiao Province, which is in Dali City, Yunnan. We rented an old wooden house from Uncle Li, a local tea farmer.
8.5 years in Shanghai and it was time to move on. It was time for a radical change. The only way to escape the clutches of alluring Shanghai is to run away. And thats what we did. We ran to Yunnan, Dali. No more first world city problems for us, let’s go rural yo.
