Visa extension success in Yunfu

View Living in Guangdong on baixing's travel map.

I foolishly booked a flight home on the day my visa expired, June 30. However, I had a layover in Guangzhou over night, which meant I wouldn't leave China until 24 hours after my visa was expired. That my friends, would be illegal. I didn't want to get involved with any Chinese law enforcement, so I took myself to the police station and politely asked for an extension. I succeeded, and 10 days later, I had one in my passport. I went out for sushi to celebrate my navigation of the Chinese visa system with only minimal help from my new boss in Beijing, Sheila. No thanks to my current boss who told me this feat would be impossible and didn't lift a finger. Bleh. I'm glad I'm done with that lady, goodbye Luoding College and Alison, hello Sheila and Beijing Polytechnic!
