The purpose of this blog is to give an account of my adventures during my stay in Shanghai, China.


Shanghai 2007 - 2008Posted by Gard-H. Madsen Thu, June 05, 2008 11:27:53


Woke at 7.30 a.m. Morning routine.

Went over to Bettinas at 9 a.m. and immediately got to work. We continued where we left off last night. With an almost disturbing attention for detail, we went through chapter after chapter, word for word, comma for comma.

At 1 p.m. we went out for lunch. Beautiful and warm weather outside so we decided to sit in one of the pavilions in the garden outside our building.

Continued working after the break. Went for a walk around 4 p.m. to get some air. We stocked up on sweets and chocolates and went back to work. I think the sugar messed us up a bit, because silly things suddenly became very funny. Updating ones msn-heading developed into a science and a source of great amusement in the group. Despite the dreary work and long hours, everyone was determined to make the paper as good as possible and very few arguments erupted.Blog Image

Finally, at 11 p.m. we called it a day. I went back to my room and collapsed on the bed, but were for some reason unable to sleep. Lay twisting and turning for some time, but eventually I fell asleep.
