Feng Zhenghu: A Day to Reflect

After he was denied re-entry to China eight times, Feng Zhenghu lived in Tokyo’s Narita Airport for 92 days in 2009-2010. Now Feng is telling the story of his airport odyssey on his blog, and CDT is translating his account.

This is part 40. Read previous installments here.

December 12, 2009

Today is December 12, my 39th day camped outside the gate to Japan.

At 12:30 p.m. the chief examiner on duty today delivered the tenth official notice. Its content was the same as yesterday’s, except for the date. I also took a picture with him, and submitted the “Feng Zhenghu Presents the December 12 Official Letter (No. 10) from the Government of Japan to the Government of China” to online media for publication, including the picture I took with the Japanese official.

This Saturday and Sunday I gave no interviews, neither in person nor over the phone. So I could relax a bit. I spent this morning and afternoon thinking about writing a substantial essay.

If any friends will pass through here, please bring a USB keyboard. You can buy one at most computer shops. Thank you. Now that I’m using an on-screen keyboard to write, typing is very slow. [Chinese]
