      Yalong Bay

      December 22, 2019 in China ⋅ 27 °C

      I woke up and took a shower and went to meet my now friend from yesternight. We ate breakfast with another Chinese dude and I just let him lead me to the right bus. Good thing he was there. We got on the bus which was a bit crowded, but I got to sit. It was a relatively packed and noisy bus ride, beside us were two Russian girls. We ended up striking some conversation with them on the bus, turns out they were also heading to Yalong bay so we decided to go together. All four of us got down and headed to the beach, we set up our things and just talked for a bit. The two girls were Julia and Tasha. Julia could speak English but not Tasha but we somehow could still vibe well with Julia translating sometimes. They shared with us the fruit they "got" from their hotel which was a blessing to eat on the beach. It was delicious.

      Apparently, Julia and Tasha are married however my Chinese friend didn't seem to understand this concept. We talked about gender politics in Russia as well as cannabis. We had some fun swimming and just talking, going back to bask in the sun. My Chinese friend invited me to go find food for some late lunch so I went with him. There was a little kid studying in the restaurant, most likely the child of the owners. My friend treated me to a good meal, I am thankful for that. He also gave me a shell necklace, super dope. I wore it the whole day. The afternoon came and passed and our two Russian friends decided to go to another beach. Us two guys decided to stay, I was still hoping for a sunset but the weather was quite cloudy, looks like there wasn't going to be one. As the skies darkened, there seemed to be another party happening at the back. I got to know my friend a lot, about his life, the Chinese mindset, and how much the government had an effect over their actions and thought. I added him on WeChat as that was the only thing he had.

      We took a long walk to find the bus, he was supposed to help me find it but he ended up meeting his Egyptian friend. They started talking and seemed like he wanted to go with him. So I told him I'd be fine on my own, even though I'm pretty sure I couldn't find the bus stop as I did not have any wifi on me to look for directions. I ended up taking a taxi instead to the hotel, to meet my family and girlfriend as this trip is actually a family reunion for Christmas. I arrived and waited for a bit and saw everyone, it was very pleasant. I was really happy to be united with Janelle again after a long time of long distance. We spent the night together just talking and getting ready for the next day.
