On this holiday in 2008 the Olympic torch passed over the quaint dam nearby and into our city of Yichang. This year’s big event, best known as Swine Flu, made a surprise appearance in the form of an alleged Nanjing city-wide mandate for foreigners to be quarantined (in their personal apartments) for a week upon return from the USA or Canada. Since our summer trip to the States was scheduled to be about 15 days this basically means we’re either fired, quarantined, or vacationless . . . Children’s Day: best day ever!
