And miles to go before I sleep.
Sitting here in the CIP Lounge—the same one I sat in 11 days ago—having something to eat and drink for the next two hours. Then I will be asked to leave and I will have to find another place to hang out for the next five hours before my flight to Incheon departs.
And of course, I am missing On very, very much.
As soon as she saw me off at Wattay International Airport a few hours ago there was already that sinking feeling in my chest; my heart already weighing heavily feeling the sadness of having to be away from On again. And this time the waiting is going to be longer—four maybe five months before I am back here again. Don’t even want to think about that now. Just going to have to take one day at a time again and hope the days and nights pass by quickly.
Have a lot to write about this trip to Laos, especially the three-day trip On and I took to Luang Prabang, which ended up being only one day for us to explore the city, but that’s okay. We’ll be back there again soon.
Now I have to get myself psyched up for teaching. I’ll get into Incheon tomorrow morning at 6:00 and then catch a bus to Daejeon. Be back in the classroom teaching again at 5:00pm.
In the meantime, it’s going to be a very long night with miles and miles to go before I sleep.
