The fireworks keep exploding, near and far. Still the new year period.
Another trip tomorrow, this time to the south, to the place where my parents are from, where my many of my relatives still are.
It's tradition to go back to the 'place you're from' in this festive season. But we decided to postpone the trip to avoid the horrible traffic jams. By tomorrow, there shouldn't be too much traffic on the highway going south.
Not sure what to expect, but perhaps expecting nothing is best. There's bound to be the usual small-talking, smiles and repeats of what everone's been doing. And what of the 'sensitive' subjects? Not sure how people will respond...not sure how I'll respond.
What will be will be.
