YAN JIN’S HOLIDAYS

Yan Jin was in the army in Shandong,
he had a one-week holiday.
He had figured it out,
altogether two days from Shandong to Xi’an
and from Xi’an to his home town in northern Shaanxi.
Going back to his unit, also two days.
So he could stay at home for three days.
In Xi’an,
at the north bus station
they screwed him and took him to Fugu
at the most northern tip of Shaanxi, 300 kilometres from home.
When he got to his family,
he was four days into his holiday
and could stay home just one day.
