Kinzie, who's leaving China for good, and I are flying out at the same time on January 17, to Seoul. One last meal together before we part ways and she goes back to Arizona. I haven't written much about her. She was perhaps the first Western teacher in Kaifaqu I felt comfortable being friends with, and she didn't get here till a year and some after I did. The staff now's really good, actually, but I've never met somebody who was just so relaxed and ready to let you do your own thing. Just fly your goddamn freak flag if you're gonna fly it—that's cool.
