If you were raised well, you know who Dr. Who is and why his story is so enjoyable.
He’s a sci-fi fan’s dream persona because he travels time, saves the world multiple times, and is somewhat dorky and geeky. In a way, his eccentricity allows him to be the adventurer and world saver because he thinks outside the box.
What more could a boy want?
Anyway, he travels in a time machine called the Tardis.
The Tardis is a classic British telephone booth that is painted blue.
At least on the outside.
However, when one steps inside, there is a bunch of gadgets and controls that allow Dr. Who to travel through time.
Well, this Tardis isn’t blue but I thought it was as close to any Tardis I will find in Beijing or China.
In a way, travelling to China, is my Tardis. I’m travelling through time, space and dimension to a universe that I didn’t have any notions about or any real idea about before I arrived.
If not for the job offer that I was given, I wouldn’t even be here now. I’d be somewhere else. Doing something else. And probably not travelling the world, seeing things I couldn’t even imagine, or meeting people I’d never know.
Actually, I guess I’m my own Tardis.
To quote Doctor Seuss, “Oh, the places you shall go.”
Dr. Seuss was right. As was Dr. Who.
Each day that I wake up, I’m more excited to discover the places I shall go.
