I just gave Mi Lao Shi a call; I won’t be going for any more pan guan bi lessons until after I get back from Singapore, and possibly until after the Olympics. This week has shown me that the security on the subway is extremely strict, and I’m not prepared to risk trouble by taking my weapons through the scanners. The alternative is to use taxis, but I don’t go directly to class, and I don’t come straight home afterwards, so that would mean using taxis all day, for multiple journeys. That’s too expensive. It only affects a couple of lessons, since we had in any case agreed to suspend classes at the end of July.
