A Break in Aksu

Wow, call me stupid.

Aksu, August 19th 2012

Just like in life, so is it with traveling, I suppose. There are always ups and downs. Peng Li's queer act during my leaving Jinyue Hotel last night had absolutely been the down part in this trip. But when the surprise of a double-decker train rolled in front of my eyes, that became the up part. I told you, if I were a child, I would have literally jumped up and down. Then I arrived here, in Aksu. If the ups and down were drawn by a graphic line, there would have been 2 sharp peaks of ascending descending, ascending descending.

After finally checking in Pudong Holiday Hotel, I found the ascending line again. Call me silly, I don't care. I enjoyed every bit of this room, because I had never stayed in a room like this all my life. This wasn't the most expensive room I had paid for in this Silk Road journey, but this one was the most luxurious one I had. The others were at most only half of this in terms of modernity, design, space, cleanliness, everything.

I decided that I deserve a break.

I pushed the door of the bathroom and my jaws dropped. Wow. I stared at the exquisite toilet table. And then the shower... wow again. Washing all the sweat and desert sand under a strong but warm shower was one thing. But taking a shower like a rich lady was another. Yuhuuu.

Wait a minute, which one is for which? Oh okay, this one I'll use to dry my hands, so just put it here next to the sink. This one, I think is for drying your face. So I'll hang it here. Hmmm, and this one, hang it in front of the shower room. Towel management, done.

Did you see that desk at corner left of my room just now? You didn't?
Here you are, I give you a close up. Even the president director of the company where I work, doesn't have a desk like this in his office, you know. On the right side of the desk there is a lid which keeps network, internet, telephone cables neatly intact. Inside there are also electric power sockets. I sat there with my laptop, a cup of hot coffee, and Xinjiang pizza. Errr, I don't know what you call it. I'll show you the picture in my next post.

I've always been amazed with my brain. When I feed it with coffee, it relaxes, and sends signals of comfort through out my body. Then the next minute my brain sends a signal that it's time to go to bed. Or at least just a nap, my brain will plead.

I threw myself on bed. Wow, I can bounce! Yeehaa. Do it again. Yeehaa. Ndeso.

Zzzz. Whatever you have to offer, Aksu, I'm sorry, I don't really care. The only thing I care about now is, feeling rich. Zzzz.
