Well, I’ve already told Yao Lao Shi and all the other people who needed to know…. I think it’s certain enough to announce… I’m outta here.
While I was back in Wales, I interviewed for a job, was offered it, and accepted. The background to all this, I’m afraid, falls into that category of “off-topic for this blog”; obviously, I have a life beyond what I blog about here, and sometimes that has to take precedence.
The details are all uncertain just now but I expect to leave Beijing in September. I’ll have to visit Singapore before I go, and hope to catch up with some of you then. With any luck, time and funds allowing, I’ll go back on the Trans-Sib, though I doubt I will have time to visit the Ryabko school.
I’ll be based in Swansea…. which I suspect means that I’ll try to sign up for bagua and taiji with the Montaigue clan…. Plus there’s a systema school there…. It’ll be fairly easy to get to London, as well.
Don’t know what this means for the blog. I will certainly keep posting until I leave Asia; once I get to Wales, well, I’ll have to see. It’s a funny old life….
