Yes, I'm just imagining that I am sitting here in Guangzhou at 13.10 on a warm Sunday (35C) enjoying my lunch of pork cooked with love by my beautiful Chinese wife. We arrived back from a great vacation in Yunnan Province on Friday.

Some of the middle age men living in the cages have nice flats in Shenzhen. They work in Hong Kong. The cages are rented for sleeping. On off-work days they go to Shenzhen meeting familiies.

Oh, and BTW, Shanghai Air remarkably got us to Lijiang on schedule. The old town was packed with families all day and the "young crowd" in the evenings.{:soso_e103:} Lugo Lake was serene and romantic{:soso_e102:}. Eastern Air manged to delay our return by 4.5 hours due to "air traffic congestion" {:soso_e115:}. What a wonderful imagination I have.

Don't say that loud, Robert will be disappointed to learn that they are Chinese and their plight has nothing to do with the British!
