Flag of China  , Yunnan,
Monday, June 2, 2008

So I'm here, but I'm tired. My cloths are tired. Every T-shirt that doesn't have a stain has a whole. The last pair of slacks I bought in London are tearing off as if I'd soaked them in  acid. My shoes are tired. The hiking boots are coming apart and are not waterproofed at all anymore. The flip flops are pealing off. I've lost my computer mic. My mobile refuses to charge, so it is now just a dead weight in my backpack. The backpack is beginning to look a little ruff on the edges itself. You can barely read the word Bulgaria on the little Bulgarian flag that I saw on the front pocket. My camera is tired - it looks like I've taken it to a war, not to vacation. My computer is running low on disc space. I have to go through all the forgotten folders and delete old files, so I can fit few more pictures. The external drive is flat out broken and I can't get files needier on, nor off. I pack up most of the camera staff and the hard drive and ship it to Kety in Copenhagen. I dare not ship to Bulgaria. It might end up in Bolivia.

With all this tiredness it is amazing that the only thing that looks quite fresh is...hum...me. I look myself in the mirror and I am quite frankly amazed. My hair is long and bouncy, no split ends. My skin is clean and radiant despite the fact that I ran out of face moisturizer in March. Amanda joked in Thailand that I have the world traveler glow. Maybe so. I am in perfect health, never mind the street stall rice-noodle-rice-noodle diet for the past couple of months. I sleep well and wake up at 7. I may have discovered my best beautification recipe yet - no work, no stress, new town at least once a week. I'm tired still. I am considering going to a monastery...to learn kung-fu, you didn't think.... I'm tired of traveling, not tired of life...
