|High mountain tea in Wuyi Shan.|
This time, I have nine other people with me all excited to visit one of the remote tea farms. Then, the day before our two-hour hike to my favorite place on earth, I developed a back problem! Muscle spasms occurred whenever I took a deep breath or moved a certain way. Generally, spasms like these zap me whenever I don't expect it.

The day we were to make this pilgrimage began with pouring rain. Mr. Wang, my tea farmer calls at 6 AM to ask if I want to cancel. In between painful spasms I decided my group members would likely commit murder if I cancelled so I told him we are coming up, no matter what. I seriously didn't know how but I was going to tough this out no matter what.
