[-Shanghai-] I have tire treads on my pants


After a dinner of sushi and beer, Rowat, Diana and I went go-karting with a bunch of ex-pats and a few locals. These karts flew and I was the unfortunate recipient of a rear-ending after rear-ending another car. The pileup resulted in my leg wedged between one car's bumper and my steering column. Leg's cut, bruised, slightly swollen, and I'm now walking with a limp. Good times.

Our attempt at bar-hopping was pre-empted by Chinese five-oh shutting down two places we wanted to go. The night ended with a whimper at Goodfellas, which was a straight bar packed with men dancing to Abba. I ended up buying five DVDs (Meet the Parents, xXx, The Fifth Element, Rush Hour 2, Britney in Vegas) for $6 US total. Good times.
