The next day, if possible apply for a same day tourist visa into China, if I get it I'll take the Ferry to China that afternoon, otherwise stay another night in HK and take the ferry the next morning
In China, Shen Zhen (bordering with HK, really) I will visit two clients, one of which will have hopefully helped me, as arranged, to get my plane ticket to Nanjing this Friday afternoon.

In Nanjing I will meet up with the client who's bank rolling this trip, and join his party for a tour around the south of China for a week! After which I will leave them for a few days while they go back to Taiwan, then catch up with them about a week later in Kaohsiung, Southern Taiwan. I hope to catch up with friends in Shanghai, one set of which were the group I took on tour at the start of this year see: Shanghai Trip

My cell phone will be roaming too, so if you want to call me you can, (021 997798) but its pretty expensive for me to answer! (I have to pay for the portion from NZ to China, HK or Taiwan- you just have to pay the usual to call a cell phone!) If you have your own vodafone phone, why not just text me? or try ICQ, or http://www.mtnsms.com/
