I don’t like saying goodbye and maybe you also don’t but I have to this time. My time in Nanjing has been close to a year and I have to wind up and head back to Kenya. Its been a time of learning Chinese language and culture in the best way I can and all this is because of the great friends and teachers I came across. While in Nanjing I got to visit many places of which I shared with you. From Nanjing I will head to Guangzhou (广州) and stay for two days then jump on the next plane to Kenya, via Ethiopia.
Great Moments In Nanjing – In Pictures
Saying goodbye has never been an easy thing and to most of whom I said goodbye they requested me to come back soon. I would really like another opportunity to be here because just when I was getting used to Nanjing, thats when I have to head back to Kenya. I feel strongly that theres more that I could have done so I will do by best and get another opportunity to return. My Mission in China is not complete yet.
There are some may posts which I will be writing about my initial family visits so that to keep the memories lasting more and to inspire another globe trotter/student to take up from where I left. As I sadly prepare for my journey back accross the world I will really miss you guys and I hope we shall meet again….I will be back soon.
I would want to thank all my Teachers: Zhang Laoshi, Xiao Min (小敏), Liu Laoshi, Zhu Laoshi and all the helpful staff at 6th Floor. To all my colleauges and Chinese firends, thanks for all the good time we had together and may God bless you abundantly. Xiao May thanks for all the hours we spent on Skype as we helped each other imporove our English/Chinese everyday until we all passed our language exams. Thanks Yang Liang for being my first Chinese friend putting up with my poor pronounciation and inviting me to your home. Thanks Zhang Qin for the 4 day visit to your home and warm hospitality. Thanks Jodie for the great places we went and food that we ate and I wish you a great life ahead. Thanks everybody 🙂
Time To Go
Well, with everything packed into heavy suitcases which have alsready esceeded the airlines recomended weight limit, we went to Nanjing Railway Station to board the 27hr slow train to Guangzhou. As I write this am currently in Guangzhou and I will write more about it when I have rested enough. The train ride was the best ever and onboard made new friends…but thats a story for another time..
