I was happy to see the metal shop open today. The guy didn’t have any work, but he sat at his saw horse doing bookkeeping and reading.
I am amazed that no one is upset or angry about the internet blackout. I tried not to get political when discussing it, but on one seemed at all concerned. In fact, I feel a little odd about even bringing up the subject.
I didn’t do much this afternoon. I walked home from the closed library and had an early dinner at a place I’ve eaten several times. I had meatballs, which I’ve had before and liked quite a lot. I ate two and took two home. It cost 28 yuan (about $4.10
USD), the most expensive meal I have had in a while.
It was very hot and humid by this time. I went home and sat in front of the fan a couple of hours before going out for my laps. It was so hot, I didn’t even stop at the night market on my way home.
I glanced at the Discussion Forum on the ShenzhenStuff website. There was a question about Hotmail not working. Several people were having trouble, but no one mentioned that the government might be blocking it. There was a like to a Microsoft website that said they were working on the problem? There were a few replies, then the discussion was closed. No explanation. But the handful of comments were not erased either.
