Today I leave for Shanghai!
Woke up at 6am as usual (Can’t sleep pass 7 for some reason), went out for my last stroll in BeiJing, ate some local breakfast and went back to my room to pack up my things. The train leaves at 11:05, so I best leave the hostel at 9:00, this gives me time to get some lunch.
Leaving is always a sad even, especially when we’ve all bonded like a small family over the last 5 days, I promised everyone that I will be back again in September.
Huang Gang and Liu ZiHong had offer to take me to the train station fearing I might get lost on the way (looking from my past record it is a justified concern…), I took them up on their offer and promised I’d buy lunch.
Other than having to stop a few times to help confused foreigners (and advertise my youtube channel), the walk to train station was uneventful. We ended up eating lunch at a KFC, I was curious about the adaptation of fast food in China, but I was disappointed about the food I received, I would have gladly traded for some noodle…
after shedding some manly man tears and hugged some manly man hugs (Chinese are so strange that they’ll wrap their arms around your shoulder, but hugging is off limit), I hopped on to the D31 train and off to ShangHai I go!
