Arrived Guangzhou, L-less. I am sad. I want her to be here. But she tells me she is in Beijing and just about to board for Guangzhou.
I managed to get the hostel details off her, well the phone number (I’d already googled the address) so at least I can now contact someone if needs be. And I charged my phone just enough to last me.
My knees are sore. 11 hours is a really long time and I’m all crumpled up again. I just wanted to walk and walk, like an old osteoarthritic joint needing to be worked up.
The faces have changed, as they would. I am one of the few brown people around. Back to being an ethnic minority. I might as well be in Belfast.
I feel less stressed now. It will all be fine.
Ps wonder if we get food on this flight? Definitely time for breakfast.
