Saying goodbye


Tomorrow we leave Shanghai and go to Beijing

Goodbyes are always hard

When you’ve grown to know someone, when you’ve spent time with someone long enough to miss them, and yet you have to say goodbye.

But you only ever say goodbye to people you want to see again.

It’s like a reassuring “perhaps we’ll meet again”

You say goodbye to your family and friends.

And make sure you give them one last tight hug.

Because even though we only say goodbye to people we will miss and want to see again, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your paths will ever cross again.

Goodbye Shanghai

Goodbye to the people

Goodbye to friends I’ve made

Goodbye to the streets, the restaurants, the culture

I’ll be back one day
