It’s time for another: FUN vs FUNK!
This time, let’s look at my near-future business trip to China which is now expected to be 3-4 weeks long. and what better time for this FUN vs. FUNK than right now! Especially since China’s president is hanging out a mere stones throw from my company this morning as he gives a presentation to Yale.
fun: I’ve never been to china. I hear its got some walls
funk: 24+ hours in a plane qualifies as ‘cruel and unusual punishment’ in most civilized societies
fun: a month in china means that I will surely have at least one or two days off to explore the eastern world
funk: all scheduled events: kung fu, rockclimbing, guitar lessons, graduate classes, jam sessions will have to be canceled
fun: no gas bills for a month!
funk: there’s a good possibility that plumbing will not be existant.
fun: china is kind of magical
funk: I’m not going to “cool place” China. I’m going to the South Dakota equivilent of China.
fun: If there’s internet, my website will be exciting
funk: there may not be internet
So I guess the entire balance of this trip is tipping on whether the destination has internet access.
