Morning frost on the train window before sunset. From Beijing to Harbin.

And the sunshine started to blind my eye.
Was it ten years away from my hometown? After ten hours train ride from Beijing to Harbin, I finally stepped back into this campus where my mom spent her 20 years of life in here, started as a university student and later became a well-known professor and administrator. Then she gave up everything and immigrated to Canada because she wanted a more relaxed and simplified life.

Yes, I was away for ten years. From 2005 to 2015.
