H.E.A.T in China!

 H.E.A.T arriving in China

Yes, you read it right. H.E.A.T is at the moment on tour in China. And what a tour that is! I mean 11 gigs in 12 days and only 1 day off. That is a hard schedule they have. China isn't the smallest country and it's very far to go. They actually cross almost the whole of China from the north to the west, south and east. It must be totally fascinating and I know they would at least go on the Chinese wall but I hope they see much more than that.

 Setting up for one of the gigs

Here's their schedule every day:

05.30 am -                  Wake up, pack your stuff and get ready to go.
06.00 am -                  Go to airport or train station.
07.00 am - 11.00 am - In the air or on the rails.
11.00 am - 12.00 pm   Arrive in a new city and check in at hotel.
01.00 pm - 05.00 pm - Eat lunch, take a trip downtown and/or sleep.
05.00 pm - 07.00 pm - Sound check & dinner
07.00 pm - 08.30 pm - Prepare for show.
08.30 pm - 10.00 pm - Show time!
10.00 pm - 11.00 pm - Signing session after show.
11.00 pm - 05.30 am - Do whatever you like but you're getting up at 05.30                             to do the same routine all over again.

 Pig brain and other strange food

They also eat a lot of strange stuff like lamb lungs, pig brain....

I wouldn't try that if I knew what it was but according to Jonas and the others pig brain was actually good?!

 H.E.A.T in a street somewhere in China

Here's a photo of a real Chinese building. It's beautiful and very different don't you think?

That's it for now about H.E.A.T. What have I been up to since last then? Well it's a new month for starters. And I have been working very hard, like every month when invoicing. I have also been having a meeting with the party committé in the Rheumatic association where I am the convener(are you surprised?)

On our agenda was planning the Christmas celebrations. Well, you have to begin in time :-)

After that me and my very good friend went to dinner at Hasselbacken before enjoying the musical Spök (Ghost). It's a Swedish musical and it's very funny with good music, dancing and singing. I can truly recommend it to anyone that wants a good musical.

This weekend has been calm with no "must do's". Just relaxing, out for a walk in the forest with Emil, reading the new book from Jonas Jonasson (have you read the 100-year old....yet Jo?)

Next week will be full again, as usual, so it has been nice to regain some strength. 

Take care and have a great week.
