Feels like home (kinda).
Last night, I went to a friend from work’s place to have dinner with a few friends. In a very rare move, Beijing’s weather turned on a lovely night - hot, but comfortable, with clear skies and a stunning sunset. Best of all, my friend has a huge balcony, so we could actually sit outside and enjoy ourselves.
We had a barbeque, and drank ice-cold beers. We talked into the night, with much laughter. It was a much needed morale boost, and a few times I caught myself thinking - this feels like home.
