At 5:30 in the morning in Shanghai, the sky is shining, and the street lights on both sides of the city roads are still emitting orange-yellow rays, and they are shining with the ray of sunrise on the horizon.
Today, Lipman got up early. She posted a photo of the scenery outside the window on the social networking site, with three large suitcases of luggage, and came to the hotel lobby early to check out - today is the 14th sunrise she has ushered in in Shanghai, and the first to end the quarantine. one day.
"l miss this city (I miss this city)." Starting from the isolation hotel to the residence, Lipman rolled down the car window to let the cool autumn wind blow across his cheeks, and took out his phone to take pictures outside the window. Afterwards, she waved to the traffic and buildings around her, tilted her head and said, "Hello freedom!" After that, she leaned back in her chair and laughed.
Compared with the expectation and longing of coming to Shanghai for the first time a year ago, Lipman's journey this year is more happy and exciting: after several twists and turns, he finally got his visa and air tickets, passed the nucleic acid test and arrived in Shanghai. The thought of meeting familiar coaches and teammates right away, the word that Lipman said the most along the way was happy.
The quarantine was lifted and smoothly exited. When passing by the coffee shop, Lipman was even more excited, ordering his favorite espresso and croissant, and then looking at the display counter excitedly. After getting the food, she also developed the habit of taking pictures first and then eating, to face the long-lost sunshine and save this happy moment.
After taking a sip of coffee with joy, Lipman deliberately sighed in an exaggerated tone, and couldn't help laughing happily. The driver master was amused: "She is really happy, flying out of the cage like a bird." Lipman joked: "I'm just like a child!"
After arriving at the hotel to take a break, Lipman, who put on his sportswear, couldn’t wait to rush towards the Oriental Land base.
When he arrived at the base, it was time for dinner. The coach Wang Zhiteng was already waiting at the entrance of the cafeteria. Seeing the "big king" from a distance, Lipman couldn't help exclaiming: "God, why is the king so thin? It's like a different person!" When she approached and greeted, she still looked surprised: " King, you are too thin! What have you experienced?" "I eat a lot of vegetables, just like you insist on a vegetarian diet!" The king responded briskly.
Finally, I can dine alone without having to dine in the hotel room. Lipman chose his favorite vegetables and staple food in the cafeteria, and sat opposite Wang Zhiteng while eating and chatting, like a pair of old friends who had reunited for a long time.
Seeing that the foreign girl was struggling to eat noodles with chopsticks, the king asked the canteen for a fork. Lipman looked at him, then at the fork, but did not put down his chopsticks. "She is a bit slow to eat noodles with chopsticks." Da Wang explained to his friends in Chinese. Who knows Lipman suddenly raised her head: "Are you thinking that I am slow? I can understand it!" Her pretending expression made the people around her laugh...
After lunch, Wang Zhiteng communicated with the driver about the next delivery arrangements, and then took care of Lipman about the latest training plan and precautions.
After only more than an hour of lunch break, Lipman appeared in the women's volleyball training hall and joined the team for joint training. I reunited with my teammates again after half a year. Everyone was very happy and the training mood was very high.
