I’d been trying to decide how to get back to Beijing after visiting Vietnam when I found out that a friend I hadn’t seen in a few years is going to be in Cambodia at the same time I’m in Vietnam. I haven’t ever been there, so it’s going to work out splendidly. After having been stuck in the US for the last few years, I’d forgotten how nice it is to be able to up and go somewhere on a whim. This summer is probably going to be the last time in a while that I’ll have the flexibility to do that, so while I still can, I’m going to take advantage of every opportunity available to me.
Now my passport won’t look so empty either.
