Reasons why I haven’t slept in a long time:

Osaka: slept on a dog bed.

Shanghai: Mysterious “Whirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr BOOOOM” noise from the attic.

Wuhan: Fire cracker explosions every hour.

Yichang to ChongQing: Spent two days on a boat with a festival toilet in the corner, being stared at by tree men holding potato sacks full of clothes.

ChongQing: Perpetual racket caused by fighting cats.

Chongqing to Kunming: Night bus with beds designed for midgets.

Kunming: Got drunk.

Lijiang: Got up early to go to tiger leaping gorge.

Tiger leaping Gorge: Stayed up late to look at the stars. Got drunk.

Kunming to the Vietnam border: Night bus designed for slightly smaller midgets.

Vietnam border: Mosquito infested room.

Sapa: Got locked out of the hotel because it closed at 10p.m.

Hanoi: Annoying Australian prick snoring like a dying water buffalo.

Hoi an: Other people got drunk.

Hoi an to Nhatrang: Night bus designed for midgets.

Nhatrang: Too angry to sleep due to theiving moto txi drivers.

Mui ne: Got drunk.

Saigon: Furnace-like room.

Mekong delta: Room looked like something out of a horror movie, complete with blood stains, flies, and a length of bent iron pipe next to the door. I presumed the pipe was for self defence, and accordingly stayed awake in case i needed to use it.

Phnom Pehn: Slept in a bar.

Sihanouk ville: Strange man doing crystal meth on my bed.
