Not too long ago, I came off the plane from a cushy junket in Australia, dumped my bags, hopped onto a train, and went further north than I had ever been in my life.
There was no one to say goodbye to*. No one was waiting for me. Nobody knew where I was. I didn't know if I had money to come back. Behind me was a job and a pirated VCD collection. Ahead was thrilling uncertainty.
