After an eventful night at Free Club, we're spending the day packing, buying food supplies, and getting ready for our trip to Chang Bai Shan. Happy National Day, China! But being away means that I won't be able to wish my lovely sister, Sophie, a happy birthday on October 4th. So here's an early greeting: Zhu Ni Shengri Kuai Le!
I miss all my friends and family, but not being able to talk to Sophie often is definitely one of the harder parts of being away. She understands me better than anyone, she's a great listener and super smart, adventurous, and thoughtful. She's doing amazing work at The Sonoran Institute and even though it's not typical for older sisters to feel this way, I look up to her in a big way. So, happy happy happy birthday to a wonderful woman. I miss you!
