Homeless

[Daily Blog Post #268]

Today I explored Shanghai by myself trying to look for a shoe store. I couldn’t find it and I felt frustrated.

When I walked back home I saw 4 homeless men on one street block, just a street down from where I work, and I felt mad and laughed at myself for feeling frustrated for not being able to spend $150 on a pair of shoes that day.

As much as I’ve been missing home since traveling, it hurts me to think that some people don’t have a home to miss.

I dropped 5 Yuan in a man’s jar and I really wish I gave him more. The 5 Yuan made him very grateful, but I knew I can and will do more.
