Parents + Hengyang = Happiness
Hello dear family, friends, and fans.
Recently, I've been busy preparing for...my parents visit to China. They will arrive this Friday (June 4th) in the international city of Hong Kong. If all goes as planned, I will be waiting for them at the airport. We will enjoy 2-3 days playing in Hong Kong before heading inland to Hengyang.
My parents have not traveled overseas much, and this is their first time to visit China. I can't wait to take them around and show them off. They will come to class with me, meet my friends, taste delicious food, see the alley rats, check out the varieties of "meat" at the supermarket, drink my favorite bubble tea, and just chill. I don't know what they'll think about the life here, the way that everyone takes a nap from 12:30 to 2:15, the way that people stare and point at foreigners. I'm trying to remember what I thought about Hengyang when I first arrived. I just remember feeling tired and overwhelmed for about a month. Hopefully dad and mom can speed through that feeling in a few hours.
