Day 32: LEAVING FOR THE LAST LEG
We had an early 8:40am departure for Beijing. The morning was sunny and a little bit of fog was over the river just a stone’s throw from our room.
So after our breakfast, we met up with Susan (who was now dressed in different clothes since she was able to spend the night at home) and were quickly escorted to the airport.
Once at the airport, we went through all the formalities with boarding passes, checked luggage, etc.
And when it came time to get through the security, that was when we had to bid a fond farewell to Susan. She had been such a great guide these past few days despite some communication problems. But we could tell she genuinely tried to pick up more English as we conversed while we tried to have her help us with our Chinese.
Anyways, our hands were full of carry-ons, though I could sense it was a moment where we easily could’ve exchanged warm hugs. At least we have each others’ emails and hopefully we’ll be looking for each other on the internet…
