The joy of Chinese Spring Festival, where everything shuts down for at least a week. I’ve been running around Shuangjing trying to negotiate deals with hotel gyms to let me workout while my gym is closed. Had a desk clerk contemplate a bribe until a manager walked around the corner and I was firmly told, “Sorry, it’s $40 for 1 time”.

The question remains, “What to do for a 2 and a half week vacation in China?”
