With less than two months since Adam had returned from two years studying at Renmin University of China in Beijing, Eric was on his way for the same program of study: immersion in Mandarin Chinese language training.
One of Eric’s friends gave him a last-minute gift: a grille as bling for his teeth.
A group of his close friends congregated at the Pearson Airport to see Eric off.
The group posed for a photo of their last moment together.
Less than 24 hours later, Eric was online in Skype, reporting on his airplane trip. Halfway around the world, and modern communications make it seem almost like next door.
