Jealousy (Off Topic)

Pretty far off-topic, but I feel like pointing out that at the moment I'm jealous of my son. He lives in Shanghai, China, and is about to go on a "golden week" (national holiday week) trip to Wulingyuan. That's the paradigm of those impossible-seeming mist-shrouded, tiny, steep mountains. He's also visiting an ancient city thereFenghuang, which looks really interesting..

I'm positively green.

I really hope to get there some day myself.

On the other hand, I'm not particularly jealous of his recent work schedule. He's a legal assistant at a Chinese law firm, so he gets traditional Chinese two-hour lunches. On the other hand, he's also expected to exhibit the standard Chinese virtue of hard work by regularly working his brains out until 2 AM. Retirement's a lot less stressful.
