My stress fracture has healed enough that I am walking on it. My first week of walking on it came during Eco Camp (don't worry, a blog to come), and with each week, I'm doing more and more. I'm still resting often, and doing a lot of stretching and exercising. The first weeks of walking were difficult. My legs were constantly sore--I guess that's what happens when you don't walk on them for a month.
I didn't want to return to Lanzhou yet. Instead, my project for the remainder of August is Operation Save My Summer. Currently on the itinerary is Shanghai, Nanjing, Wuhan and Beijing. However, I'm not travelling with an itinerary, so things could change; I just want to relax and enjoy my time in each city (and on the orders of the PCMO, I shouldn't be climbing mountains or anything particularly adventurous).

Also, if you haven't gotten a chance, learn something about The Great Firewall of China.
