(Su Min, 56-year-old lady traveling around China alone)

她叫苏敏,今年56岁。她是一个很普通的人,普通的女人。很普通地,早早结了婚,生了一个女儿。现在女儿也有了自己的家庭,有了自己的孩子。但是,这位普通的女性却在中国的网络上走红。

在她56岁这一年,她决定自己一个人环游中国。她的一生都在忍耐。忍耐,to endure, to bear with something。她结婚30年,但是过得不快乐。她的丈夫很冷漠,冷漠,ruthless。经常批评她。在他们这一辈看来,离婚对孩子很不好,所以她为了她的女儿,没有离婚。后来,女儿结婚了,有了孩子。她知道女儿工作很辛苦,所以帮忙照顾孙子。现在,孙子上学了,她觉得她已经做完了一切。所以,她决定,离开冷漠的丈夫,自己一个人开车环游中国。环游,travel around。

这个计划一点都不容易。苏敏不是有钱人。她在超市打工,存了一些钱,又向女儿借了一些钱,才终于买了一辆车。后来,她又买了一个帐篷,放在车顶,可以睡觉。她一个人开始了旅行。她去了中国的很多地方,认识了很多的朋友,但是也遇到了一些危险。有一次,她在山路上开车,一辆大货车离她很近很近,差点撞上了她的车。

有时候,她也会觉得孤独。2021年的春节,原本是和家人朋友一起庆祝的节日。她一个人,开着一辆车,带着一个帐篷,在云南过了春节。

我们一起来听一听,苏敏在旅行时的想法:

苏敏:“呼吸到了自由的空气,心情呢,越来越好了。蓝天白云啊,看。但是今年的冬天呢,个别地方也出现了一点小疫情,所以心情还是比较低落的。同时也担心家里面的人。”

她说,呼吸到了自由的空气。自由,free, freedom。心情,mood。心情越来越好了,意思是她越来越开心了。但是因为中国的一些地方有一些covid-19的疫情,所以她的心情比较低落。心情比较低落,意思是不太开心。同时,at the same time,meanwhile。担心,worry。她同时也很担心她的家人。

我们再来听一听苏敏怎么说的:

苏敏:“呼吸到了自由的空气,心情呢,越来越好了。蓝天白云啊,看。但是今年的冬天呢,个别地方也出现了一点小疫情,所以心情还是比较低落的。同时也担心家里面的人。”

Hello everyone. Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese. Today I would like to talk about a 56-year-old Chinese auntie.

She is called Su Min and is 56 years old this year. She is an ordinary person, an ordinary woman. She got married very early and gave birth to a daughter. Now her daughter also has her own family and children. However, this ordinary woman is going viral on Chinese Internet.

In her 50s, she decided to travel around China by herself. She has spent her whole life enduring something. She has been married for 30 years but she was not happy. Her husband is ruthless and always criticizes her.  From their generation's point of view, divorce is not good for their children. Therefore, she did not get divorced because of her daughter. Later, her daughter got married and had children. She knew that her daughter had to work hard, therefore she helped look after her grandsons. Now, her grandsons went to school. She felt that she had done everything. So she decided to leave her ruthless husband and drive to travel around China alone.

This plan was not easy at all. Su Min is not rich. She worked in a supermarket and saved some money. She then borrowed some money from her daughter and finally bought a car. Later, she then bought a tent which can be placed on the top of her car, so she can sleep there. She started to travel alone. She went to many places in China and met lots of friends. However, she also experienced some danger. Once she drove on the mountain road. There was a big van that came very close to her and nearly crushed her. Sometimes she would feel lonely. In the Spring festival of 2021, which was a festival for everyone to reunite with their families and friends, she drove the car alone, with a tent and celebrated the festival in Yunnan Province.

Let’s listen to what Su Min thought during her travels.

Su Min:”(I) breathe some air of freedom. My mood is getting better and better. Look, blue sky and white cloud. But this winter there are a few places with a covid outbreak, so my mood was a bit down. Meanwhile, I am also worried about my families.”

She said that she breathed some air of freedom.  Her mood was getting better and better, which means that she was happier and happier. But because there were a few places with a covid-19 outbreak in China, so her mood was a bit down, which means she was not super happy. Meanwhile, she was also worried about her family.

Let’s listen to what Su Min said again.

Su Min:”(I) breathe some air of freedom. My mood is getting better and better. Look, blue sky and white cloud. But this winter there are a few places with a covid outbreak, so my mood was a bit down. Meanwhile, I am also worried about my families.”
