Well, I was looking at notes on my tablet that I had made when I first arrived in Beijing. I wrote 362 days ago this list:
- 4 dogs being walked
- Hardly any cars or people to be seen
- beautiful gardens, manicured and lush
- 17th floor
This was written at 8:52am, about two and half hours after I had landed. I was in my apartment looking down at the garden between my building and the next building over.
Weird that in 4 days, I will be returning to start my second year.
And I keep saying, “I am really looking forward to going home“.
