Truth is, I never left. Three years ago.
Several of us arrived around the same time. Us transient people of this great city from else countries, drank the city in by the fire hoses. We, like all transient people, experienced the trickling out. I left them behind in 2008.
At a great catch-up get together, Friend mentioned the “Beijing fatigue.” Like a lover, this city drives you so crazy that you must leave, once in a while for a while. But you knew you cannot really leave. You will be back.
It is a gorgeous day from the hotel window. Sigh..
