China: Finale.

The end is in sight:
Friday, 07/22/2011, 5:29 p.m.
Eric says: "Johnny and Sasha Cohen
after AOI dress rehearsal #999,999,999."

Kayso Johnny and Eric made it back safely on Monday from the Never-Ending Trip To China, so that was good, and whilst they were collapsing and trying to adjust to literally having two Mondays in a row but not nearly enough sleep on any day in recent memory, we all continued to be dazzled by the endless treasures of Weibo. And as I was perusing yet another thread of glorious Weibo picspam Tuesday at around 4 a.m. because my life is weird but it works for me, I randomly checked my email and discovered that OMG ERIC JUST SENT ONE LAST SURPRISE BATCH OF PICS!!! Upon which my first thought was, "OMG ERIC JUST SENT ONE LAST SURPRISE BATCH OF PICS!!!" followed closely by, "Why is Eric AWAKE?"

IDK. But I think we can all agree that we're really grateful that he was, and that all his pics have been amazing, and that we really appreciate that he was actually awake enough to even include captions in this batch. So thank you AGAIN, dear Eric, for going so far out of your way for Johnny's fans. ♥

And so here is the final chapter of China: The Iceman Melteth, Or: Journey To Seriously-It's-Like-5000000-Degrees-Celsius-I-Think-We're-Gonna-Need-A-Bigger-Fan Land.

(3) No flying pink pandas were hallucinated, harmed, or otherwise involved in the production of this blog. But possibly in the production of the photos. IDK.)

and uploaded to YouTube by maplecherrychoco.
Johnny liked this one so much
he even tweeted about it last night:

Bonus gifs!!
These two gifs capture the moment
when Johnny receives the "Where's my Mr. 8.5?" artwork
from a fan in Shanghai. LOL.

These two vids..."Wunderschön!".
Beautiful performances.

Great pics also...especially the last one from Taipei and the black and white them.

Thanks to Eric for all the efforts to send them and to you, as always, for writing this blog.
