My feelings are found. On the one hand the illusion of traveling with the family again, all four, after 14 years without doing so (the trip to Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic of 1997). On the other hand, leaving behind a month that will mark a lot in my life, for the loss of one of the people who have created my world and my values around. As well I leave Paula for 11 days, but I know that Tom and the crowd of friends - and samples of love they have left these days - will take care of her.
I tend to be a meticulous person, perhaps less and less. This past year I have learned to relativize a lot of small things without importance to prioritize in what makes me feel. That is why I haven't put too much love on my suitcase this time, putting a little what I was finding. Nor do I think that 11 days give too much.
The flight to Madrid has been as usual, boring. Invoice, wait, have a coffee and say goodbye to Paula (who has brought us to Alvedro, with a see you later ... "Paula, remember the moon"! I'm going to give you a lot of menoooos!) ...
… Controls, wait, delays, wait, 1 hour of flight and transfer to my grandmother's house Vale with whom we already share the Getaway to Bucharest and Transylvania 2011, this same year.
What do I expect from a trip to this southeast part of China? The truth is that I have not considered it either. I suppose that to make a small incursion in immense country, full of true wonders and true miseries. It may not be the China I intend to meet one day on a great trip, but if there are 2 regions, Hong Kong and Macao, for which I have been feeling a special curiosity for a long time. At the moment we are already in Madrid
It's been almost two weeks since grandma cotters let us and I still tremble when I think about how he said goodbye ("Maria leaves with her boots on"). He knew all his life. All this makes me think, that his wisdom went beyond, and she wanted to bring the family together 14 years later. That's why he said goodbye and left without making noise, but still there, traveling with us ... !! you are very big grandma !!
Tomorrow we leave for Guangzhou via Moscow and via a Chinese city called ... something like ... the most lost city in the world, but those are other stories that I'm sure will love to tell ...
