One day, Ipa came up a clear idea, ‘ It’s time to take a trip of what Grandma had been through during her exile.’ The idea was so clear, emerging as one statement in her mind in her dream that morning.
‘ The essence of travel is reminiscence. I should travel the path that the predecessor has travelled. No matter what is ahead, I have to travel through my grandma’s path.’
There aren’t many reasons to leave and travel afar. You ought to take this trip, to search for an answer, to ask where you come from, and where you are going. Or maybe, it is to find the right questions, the deepest reminiscence in the heart. But is a map and a book of oral history suffice enough for following her path?
A three-month journey that traced a family history of seventy years, searched for the lost taste and a bunch of stories. Life that has left taste is still going on in many’s hearts.
