I’m off to Hehuan Shan for the next few days. My plan to climb Yu Shan alone was thwarted, so I am going to a ‘safer’ place. Risk of avalanche, bear attack, and general ‘foreigner disappaerance’ are diminished. There is still room for a re-enactment of Jack Torrance in The Shining though. “Heeeere’s Johnny!”. Or more likely, Shelley Duvall: “I just want to go back to my room…”. Barring aforementioned avalanches, I should be back on Sunday. In the event of my continued absence, please delight in the frisson of assuming the worst.
