day 23: śĖįšĻź (xinle) = 0km
Today is December 1st.
Where I am from, Christmas is on the evening of December 24th.
Today is not Christmas.
—But for me it is—
I‚Äôm still chillin‚Äô when śĶ©Ś≠ź rings me up and says: ‚ÄúWhere you at, we‚Äôre coming over!‚ÄĚ
You guessed right, they‚Äôre coming to bring me back‚Ä¶
‚Ä¶my wide-angle lens!!!
But they didn‚Äôt stop there. They got me a sweets, too:
‚Ä¶a BUNCH of sweets. I can‚Äôt possibly carry all that stuff in my backpack, so I guess I‚Äôll have to stay in for a day and do some massive candy devouring!!
I have learned:
1) I slowed down the pace, and walking is more fun now.
2) I am rich ‚Äď rich in sweets, rich in friends, rich in beautiful things to see.
I‚Äôll hang out today, on this December 1st, then leave town tomorrow.
The mountains are coming closer and closer.
