See you, Yamma.

See you ,Yamma.

She finished her fourth cycling trip in Africa.

She works at the Alaska fisheries processing company, two months vacation per year, she took the chance to cycle.
She volunteers in the hospital. She never dared to turn the phone off . As long as the phone rang, no matter what time ,she would join the rescuing immediately in the ice and snow weather.

In the two months of West Africa riding, from Senegal to Ghana,she rode 3440 kilometers, 8 countries, ate 50 pineapples and read 18 books.

She never gets old.
Although she feels hip hurts when she is sleeping; Although she has to take breaks time to time when cycling;
Although she is a light sleeper who snores sometimes;
She is the lovely girl who never stops making her dream happen !

Her most exciting thing is to spread out the map and see the next unknown destination.
Sometimes she would blame me for riding too fast, but at night, she would be excited about the extra 10 kilometers, 20 kilometers we made.

She allergic to goat ,do not eat seafood, mushrooms and fish, sometimes I think she is too picky, but she can sit anywhere and happy about just have a bowl of Steamed Rice + soy sauce, satisfied about instant noodles with cold water every night.

We crossed the jungle, crossed the river, climbed the mountain, went through the dirt road,ate rat meat,had diarrhea
.
We shared pineapple, gnawed watermelons, watched the stars counting the moon, talked about the ideal, the life,the future.

One month memory,worthing the whole life to recall.

She said,i never expect to meet someone like you,
I said, there is a reason for someone showing up in our life

When i saw she off in the airport,
I was thinking, i have to finish the big pineapple just by myself now.

再,见,雅玛。

58岁的她完成了非洲的第四次骑行。
她在阿拉斯加渔业加工公司工作,每年两个月假期,她选择利用这段骑行。
她平时在医院当志愿者,24小时从来不敢关机,只要工作电话响起,不管深夜多晚,她也会在冰天雪地中出门参加救治工作。

在这两个月的西非骑行里,从塞内加尔到加纳,她一共骑行了3440公里,8个国家,吃了50个菠萝,看完了18本书。

她从来没有觉得自己老了。
尽管她睡觉时仍然髋部疼痛,尽管她有高血压,尽管她骑不了多久就得要气喘吁吁的休息,尽管她一秒钟坐下就能睡着而下一秒被轻微的树叶吹过的声音就能惊醒,尽管她睡觉打呼噜,尽管她一唠嗑起来就停不下来。
可是,她还是那个可爱的,在实现自己梦想的女孩啊!

她最兴奋的事仍然是摊开地图,看下一个未知的目的地;
她有时会埋怨我骑的太快把她弄丢了怎么办,可是晚上她又会为自己多骑了10公里,20公里兴奋不已”感谢你逼我一把,我还是挺不错的!”
她对羊肉过敏,不吃海鲜,菌类和鱼类,有时我会嫌她太挑剔,可是她却常常一碗米饭+酱油就能下饭,晚上一碗冷水泡面她便觉得知足。

我们一起穿过丛林,趟过河,上过山,挺烂路,一起爆过胎,吃过鼠肉,拉过肚子。
我们也一起削菠萝,啃西瓜,看星星数月亮,聊理想,聊未来。

这一个月的时光,却够一辈子来回忆。
她说,也许明年,我又从哪个地方冒出来,拍你的肩膀。
我说,那你一定要足够快来追上我。
此刻,看着她在机场远去的背影,
我想,以后只能一个人吃完一个大菠萝了。
