A Quarantine Gallery

Saturday, June 27th, 2009 | Connecting the Dots

We did, indeed, get out of quarantine today. Fancy certificates, flowers and everything. TIme has nearly healed the wounds already (that and a couple of really, really good meals).

Looking these over, it’s clear that once we were out of the hospital and that first awful couple of rooms, China did well by us. Considering. And the people we talked to in Q seemed to feel that the government was “doing the responsible thing” and that cooperating was a civic duty. So we did our duty, too, I guess.

It wasn’t ever the quarters. It wasn’t the food. It wasn’t even the astonishing heat (which you can’t see in the pictures, but murdered sleep for sure.) It was the simple fact that–boggling as it is to the American soul–we couldn’t leave.

so happy you’re out. I am sure you learned a lot. The last line of your post hints at the identity challenge that occurred.

Glad to see that you have been released. I like that they give you certificates and flowers. Nice parting gifts.

I also love the photos.
