Day 379: Fat Child’s Journey Back East

Urumqi – Beijing, China

I must have gained weight in Asia, being fed so well by all the friends and relatives.

The old ladies in my train compartment amicably addressed me by “Pang Yatou”, meaning “Fat child”. I don’t know what to make of it.

My mom and brother laughed their arses off when I told them the story. Before hanging up the phone call, they made sure to bid their farewell to Pang Yatou. I think this will be my nickname for the time being.

Anyway, I was on the train the whole day today doing what fat kids do: sleep and eat. Arrived in Beijing at 11pm and took a cab to Ruoz’s place. I’d be staying again at hers in Beijing. Lucky me :)
