At this moment I’m without wifi, but I wanted to write about an interaction I had with a older gentleman about 5 mins ago.
So this weekend I’m on my way to Nansha. My girl, Kisha and I are going to Chocolate City (more about that adventure later). This means I am taking a bus from Shenzhen to Nansha. This ride usually takes about an hour.
Well I finally arrive at the Luohu bus station. I want to pause here to say that Rush Hour traffic is mimics Rush Hour traffic in Atlanta….BRUTAL! Anywho, so I’ve reached an now I need to purchase a ticket.
As I’m walking to the ticket counter I’m being approached by women who are offering services. Hey…get your mind outta the gutter! 😂 The “services” are mani/pedis, massages, waxing and bootleg name brand purses. But of course I say “no thank you” in Chinese, shock the mess out of all of them and keep walking!
Then I see him! He looks like me; well at lease his skin is the shade as mine. I get excited on the inside and our eyes lock and we say “hello”. Below is the conversation that is had.
BM: Hi how are you?
Me: I’m good. Tired but good.
BM: How are you cooping?
BM: Well I’m sure you’re doing better than me. I don’t live here.
Me: Where are you from?
BM: South Africa. I come every two months to check on my businesses out here.
Me: ok I live in Shekou.
BM: Well that means your cooping. *pats my arm* Keep holding on!
Me: Thank you!
We then depart and go our separate ways.
Now I’m getting on the bus….
By the time this poats, I would’ve made it to Nansha. lol! 🙈🙊🙉
~Love, Peace, and SOOOOOUL!!!
