Distance of Solitude
This is a traveler’s story and also a journalist’s coming-of-age story. It is a journey of constant encounters and farewells.
The traveler said that she was restless and always shuttled back and forth between “local” and “foreign” places. She observed the lives of ordinary people on the road, witnessed major social events, experienced the local customs and practices, and also interviewed and communicated with local people. She listened to their stories and wrote down observations that are not usually recorded in regular travelogues.
