Jet-lagged & trying to get it together today. Hard to stay asleep for longer than a few hours. Went for a walk through the Hutongs in Beijing before 6am to tire ourselves out & get back to sleep. It worked. Woke from deep sleep at 9:30 & stayed groggy for the rest of the day, including 5 hours of rehearsal. Out for dinner tonight with friends. Early morning tomorrow – a travel day to the first show in Xin Xiang at Xin Xiang University. We’ll be flying on a bullet train.

Rehearsal today in Beijing.

Uploading the next episode of the tour diaries right now. Hopefully it gets through (a little tougher to upload from here).

Fires out.
