Stepping onto the metro I think here we go agaaain. However, this metro journey was..can I say it..FUN! This hilarious old lady was talking at the top of her voice and everyone was laughing and exchanging funny looks. For the first time I saw a man..a ‘gentle’man give up his seat to a pregnant lady. Lovely. I doodled in my new notepad (another thing I love…stationery, especially stationery in China. It is soo cheap and cute) and the man next to me peeked over my shoulder at my little ‘journey’ drawing.
Stepping off the metro, I saw the t.v tower was flashing. Not its usual colours, but all the colours of the rainbow, simultaneously. It was like walking along a sparkling, flashing rainbow road. Nothing could surely make my late night stroll home better, except it did! Climbing up the steps to my complex, I was greeted by a happy AWAKE security guard, and I swear he was singing!! Then I passed by the sleepy kitties, and to my excitement I saw a grandfather teaching his little granddaughter how to dance! yi, er, san, si, wu, liu, qi, ba. They were twirling like fairies, and I stepped into the lift with a feeling of lightness.
