In 4 days I will be traveling to China for the 3rd time.
Two days ago, I got 3 mosquito bites: two on the vein of my left ankle, and one on the other ankle. I slept practically 0 hours last night because the pain was unbearable! Did you know that I am actually allergic to mosquito bites? The pain and no comfort reminded me of the 83 bites last time in China… and it is something I am definitely not looking forward to!
However, it has been 8 years since I last visited the country and saw my grandparents. Those of you who live close to your relatives, be very grateful and spend as much time with them as possible! I am so lucky to be able to have this chance to see my relatives as well as the country again. It has definitely been a while… I truly miss everybody there and especially the both noisy and serene atmosphere. There were many things that I remember from my last trip in 2008, one of them being the nightlife. Every day after dinner, there would be people on the streets strolling around or using simple exercise equipment’s at the park.
I am excited to see the changes that have taken place over the years and show you how it is like now, yet I feel sad in the anticipation of seeing old things demolished and replaced with glittering glass towers… Oh, I almost forgot to mention; the cities that I am visiting are Beijing, Nanjing, and Tongren (a small city in Guizhou province).
Hmm, maybe no amount of discomfort from mosquito bites can quench my desire to visit China again! Here I go!
