Since arriving in China a week and a half ago, I have managed to:
- Fall over while coming down from the Great Wall scraping skin off my left knee and shin. Had to limp the whole way down with blood trickling almost down to my sock.
- Slip on a plank of wood at Jiuzhaigou today, landing all my weight on my tail bone in front of a tour group (managed to save my camera and tripod from the fall and into a river). My hip now clicks when I walk and I can't really sit for too long.
- Catch a flu in Beijing which I haven't been able to shake off for over a week (praying its not bird flu).
We are off to Chengdu tomorrow on a 10 hour bus journey but will update with photos this week. Fingers crossed things go more smoothly from now on.
