This is Henry!

On Thursday I finally got my visa to go to China and teach! I also bought my flights and so I'll be off on 14th September!

Took three attempts for the visa - the queues are crazy - there must be 1000s applying each week. Looks like my great idea for a unique trip might not be so unique after all but I have no doubt it will be a challenge.

The queues are managed by these guys who have been applying for visas on people's behalf for 15 years. They make sure that the queue is orderly and people are in the right place! I suppose they get some form of preferential treatment in return for this service - interesting system.
