Arrived at the Guangzhou airport with a warm welcome from Ada and her cousin. It was good to be back with family and not be “on guard” when traveling alone. That is one of the things that wears on the solo traveler – the constant awareness of surroundings and tuning the senses for possible bad situations. In GZ the only bad situation is the mosquitoes. And, speaking of bugs, last night I saw fireflies for the first time ever! It was around 9:00 pm and I stepped outside to get some fresh air. I saw what looked like a piece of incense flickering in the ground but then noticed it was a repeated flickering not in tune with the breeze. How neat it was to look further into the darkness and see a bunch of fireflies. We should import fireflies because they really are quite fun to watch.
