All my bags are packed up I’m ready to go… I’m standing here outside your door… I hate to wake you up to say goodbye…
That’s some melodic lyrics from Leaving on a Jet Plane, a seriously major hit song some years way back.
There are songs about beginnings, meeting someone and there are songs about goodbyes. Well, I hate goodbyes. Even when I know the person that I’m saying goodbye with is someone that I’ll be seeing in like… I don’t know, several days or weeks or months maybe, I hate airport moments and saying goodbyes. Because you’ll never know what will happen and sometimes when will you be seeing each other again.
So yeah, saying goodbye to Surabaya, a city I barely knew is also hard.
Damn, I hate goodbyes.
