>No extended Hangzhou stay…

>Originally, I was supposed to visit Hangzhou and then spend a month speaking to teenagers there afterwards, earning about 7500 RMB.

Then today I got this email:

“hello william
i am sorry to tell you that the July20-Aug.6 Camp is cancelled. because of swine flu, the local government donnot approve summer camps to open .they are worried about that lots of people togerther in public tend to spread the disease . so it is a pity .
i have been told that many of camps in other province are also cancelled.
i hope to get your understanding.And wish that donnot cause more trouble and loss.”

Oh well. The only thing that’s changed is a) I won’t be 7500 RMB richer and b) I’m not free for the July 20 – August 6 period.
