...my strange planning style makes for some interesting chance happenings.

How hard is it to get out there in the world with no expectations at all? I mean, the simple act of waking up in your room every morning is imbued with a million expectations; what is it like to wake up to an unknown language being spoken, unfamiliar birds singing, strange sounds outside the window? Could I possibly go anywhere without expectations? Probably not.
In a week, I'll be boarding a an airplane for the first time. Ok, not really, but it feels like it. My chosen destination for my first trip away from the Americas? The Middle Country, as the locals call it: China.
For the next few months, you and I will tumble around the southeastern part of China, expecting anything can happen, and following a path directed by the intersections between their rural and urban landscapes that are constantly shifting. I'll tell you more about this path later. It's not a secret, I'm just not ready to disclose. It's a project of mine that has become a secondary motivation for my travels.
Wanna come with me then?
