The day I left Beijing…

Filed under: family — admin @ 12:48 am

Flash back to the day I left Beijing on 6/18/2012, less than a month ago. I got up early that day, had breakfast around 7 AM, left for the airport rather early.

By the time we arrived at the Beijing Capital International Airport, it was a little after 9 AM. Already there was a long line waiting for boarding pass and lugguge check-in. I was standing on the line while my mother and my sister were sitting on a nearby bench.

Everything went well with me that morning. After taking some pictures and saying goodbye to them, I was on my way passing both security check and custom.

When I finally dragged my feet to Gate E26, I felt tired, hungry and an overwhelming feeling of sadness, the kind of feeling that I had every time I was sitting at the airport.

I felt this way when I first left home in 1984. Here I was still in Beijing, yet after passing the guarded gate, there seemed no way for us to communicate, seemed like we lost contact with each other, more so as I was traveling far away from home. I could see my family stood there for a long time watching me out of sight.
