You snake your way through the winding streets and are so relieved by the fact that you don’t speak the language and can’t understand a single thing you hear. You’ve never been in a place like this. You smell fish, and ginger, and scallions, and almost get hit by a whole family on one bicycle. Everything is loud. Everything is roaring. Everything is thunder. You can’t believe you’ve never travelled outside the country you were born in. Small-minded. Small-fated. Your mother wanted more for you, but she never told you that, so you had to discover it like you discovered this. Late.
