Now I’m back in Hainan, back to the thrill of running Surfing Hainan! Julieta and Darci held everything together very well while I was gone. The only thing that was broken upon my return was the wooden couch outside the shop. It was long ready to die, after suffering the weather for the last few years. I still gave them a hard time for it anyway.
My old Hong Kong friend Hans finally came to visit, for some surf lessons with his girlfriend Nicole.
I’ve known Hans here since the mid-nineties in Hong Kong, when he was a student at German Swiss and I was at Hong Kong International School.
