Can you go to Dong Yang China tomorrow?

My company used to supply engineers to US companies for overseas assignments in places their engineers would not go. A typical call from a company would go like this:

Company: Can you go to Dong Yang China tomorrow?
Me: No, but maybe the day after.
Company: Ok, go!

Three days later am wondering, why did I take this job?

Well, it was for the money, (and the adventure)! There is nothing like going someplace you have never heard of, getting there alone, and surviving. Some places seem like they are terrible at the time, but I always look back, laugh and say that it wasn't so bad. I might even like to go back there, after all, who knew dog would taste so good!
