Niamh and her Chinese boyfriend Wu Chen finally got a to have moment alone together. Between her intensive Mandarin course schedule and his 90 hour per week unpaid internship, they barely saw each other.
She had only a month left before she had to fly back to Ireland. The thought of it stressed her out immensely.
A brief trip to a lovely, quiet water town outside of Shanghai was what they needed.
She looked up and realized there was a row of three dozen Chinese tourists, freshly squeezed from a tour bus parked across the canal, enthusiastically taking photos of her and her boyfriend. Flashbulbs popping like firecrackers.
Sometimes she just felt so tired.
