Things have changed (again). My company in Shanghai announced that work has been pushed back to the beginning of March. My salary is supposedly going to be paid to me as usual — we shall see. My coworkers have said that this is essentially a paid holiday, which I guess it is. The extended-ness of it is a bit crazy, though. I was supposed to fly back to Shanghai on Feb 1, and now it looks like I’ll be back in Shanghai on March 1. Maybe.
Malaysia would have been so much cheaper to wait it out in, but I am now staying with family in Northern Ireland.
I flew economy on Oman Airlines and it was really nice.
