Excited and a little scared. Haven’t backpacked in a long time and sure as hell haven’t backpacked in such an different country as China. First part is going to be easy. Will meet Twiggy, a friend in Hong Kong, she seems to be very nice and friendly and hopefully we’ll get along very well.
I’ve been reading a lot about China as a whole, lots of interesting facts. Particularly interesting about the last emperor of China. When China started to reform to change from Empire to Republic the emperor who was very young abdicated. Later on China got inmersed in social and economic problems and Japan invaded and Japan use the emperor as a puppet and set up a new government. Japan was defeated and the emperor went to jail, he finally was pardoned and he spent the rest of his life as a gardner. He died anonymous and forgotten.
