Saying goodbye to Wuhan, China

In a city full of people, in a country very far away. I was amazed at that all the friendly smiles I got. Saying good bye to Wuhan didn’t mean much to me at the time I experienced it, versus the time I write this. It’s very heartbreaking knowing what happened to this beautiful city after I left.

Got off randomly at a stop near the airport. Wanted to see a little more of Wuhan before I go. Everything was so clam and quiet in this neighborhood. Almost like a suburban area. You wouldn’t think that you were in the middle of a city with a population of 50 million. It’s hard to believe how calm and quiet was everything. Felt like some areas in queens NYC.

Saw a huge sign and had a hint I was in wuhan’s linkong green ecological district. I mean it had large letters in English. It was hard not to know where I was at. Lost in my thoughts, I kept thinking about my time in China. Such a beautiful city that I hope to visit again. From the friendly people on the streets to the little girl in the subway that wanted to take picture with me because she never seen someone who looked like me in person. I had a great time learning and experiencing the chinese culture.

Kept walking forward until I found a Marriott hotel. It was in the color red to match China. I have gotten so used to seeing american chains around the world that it didn’t surprised me to see a Marriott here. It was just another sign that the airport is nearby. Also, another reminder that I was leaving. Had to face reality, my time was up. I wanted to explore a little bit more. However, there was a seat on a plane headed towards NYC that had my name on it.

Saying good bye is always hard. Especially, now that I know what this city went through after I left. It’s currently happening where I live now. To the awesome people I met here, I hope they are okay. Grew so much as a person here. This is a trip that changed me in so many ways. During my time there and after I left. I will truly treasure my time in Wuhan and can’t wait to go back, once this virus settles down.

Got to the airport on time and went through the security line. As planned, my seat was waiting for me. Wuhan will become a thing of the past. A part of china nobody talks about. Or so I thought, who would had known the events that would happen here the months following.

Much love and safe travels! Please keep clean everyone!! Wash your hands!!

    1. Remember I had talked to you about Cuba’s amazing health care system? Well, China has listed their produced anti-viral drug as effective in the virus, and 45 countries have requested doctors, medical teams and their drug to be brought into their countries. Meanwhile, the US is launching an attack about this on Cuba AND upon the companies seeking Cuba’s medicine and medical help. So much for the US government really caring about people or caring about ending this virus huh?!

      1. Yeah the cuban health care system is really good. This usa government is all screwed comes to health care. Not sure how i feel about that stimulus check. Mostly negative.. I really dislike how the government is trying to find someone to blame without actually finding a cure. It really unproductive and a bad look at the current party in charge. Most of the western medicine doesnt cure the source only hides the symptoms.

      2. It’s clear to me that they are trying to make this until some type of flu situation. Where we have to pay money every year to get a shot. Not very confident at those in charge now

      3. Yes, indeed. It’s ironic that many people cringe at the term socialism and yet are all ready for their handout checks, bail outs, loans etc in reaction to the virus…….all ready for THAT socialism

  1. So, what were you doing in Wuhan? And what was great about it? They certainly seem to have started something. The whole world is suffering from the repercussions.

  2. Hello. I always visit your website. You have some really amazing writing. Your travels inspire me. I want to travel like you. If I have enough money one day, I’ll travel. Thanks.

  3. Always crazy to look back and see a place we enjoyed transformed in a snap. Happy you had a good time and saw it without prejudice. Now Wuhan is famous world over and heaven knows what most people are thinking about it.

  4. Timing is everything in life. This is just absolutely crazy how your trip to Wuhan will have that much more meaning and significance to you in the years to come in a “post-Covid-19 world.” It would be the equivalent to someone who visited the World Trade Centre just days before 9/11. 😳
