Back in Kunming, off to Hong Kong tomorrow. I didn’t realize how much I would actually miss this place until I accidentally told someone in Beijing I couldn’t wait to go “home” to Kunming. This week has been just a litany of stupid mistakes on my part, which, sad to say, didn’t make the trip to Beijing as enjoyable as it could have been. In any case, I’ll be taking it slow on my last day here…walk in the park, last good-byes, maybe some cafe-hopping.
A soldier next to the Chairman Mao mausoleum in Beijing called me “comrade” the other day when he stopped me from trying to walk my bike into Tiananmen square. It seems I finally fit in here =)
