Only a week and a half more of Hangzhou and then I am off on the road again. Going up north with Mira for a couple weeks. We figure that we have to go to the “sites” of China just so we can answer “yes” to people’s inquiries as to whether or not we went to the Great wall, Terrecota Warriors, Beijing…..you know, all that stuff. So we are going to travel along the good old trodden route so that all of our travel conversations about China don’t end with a bewildered, “Where did you go then?” Like when I tell people that I have travelled through India twice and have not been “anywhere.”But we will probably mess this simple plan up somehow.
After this I don’t know where I will be. I have been with Mira everyday for the past eight months and she will be leaving me in May. Don’t know what I am going to do…maybe I will look around for her for a while in Mongolia. Mope around for a bit…wondering where my lost friend is.
The above photo is Mira. Never would guess that she is Barak Obama’s cousin. Funny…there is something about her that just doesn’t resemble Barak…..hmmmm….just can’t quite figure out what it is?????
