Up and away

Airports never cease to fill me with this familiar feeling of total awareness of surroundings so full of people going somewhere, drowned in their world of unsettling emotions, excited anticipations and wishful retrospections, as they wait to enter this portal called the airplane which after hours of solitude in the crowded discomfort and unfulfilling meals Рwould leave them in a whole different reality.

Today I fly back to Shanghai, to the familiar hard and exciting reality of life in China; with hopes of returning in a month for good, to this romantic beauty of a city that Amsterdam is, which forever will stay in my heart right beside my first love San Francisco

Bits of Shanghai

Its one city where crowd moves fast and internet goes slow; For a foreigner time goes fast and life is hard. Three weeks in Shanghai so far here and it has been every bit difficult as I had imagined and even more exciting than I had ever hoped, for I had expected less. I have waited for months to move here and strange turn of events now make me yearn to move back.
