Beijing-Shanghai Flight: Beyond and Under the Clouds

When we were a young school boy / girl, we surely asked our teacher what's beyond the immaculate cotton of clouds. But, he only referred us [ww2010.atmos.uiuc.edu] to the nimbus, cumulus, stratus and cirrus.

We surely pissed off our parents to prove that beyond the clouds is Heaven

When we see a view like this from our window, we surely think the world is made up of an endless, infinite beauty that nobody can ever fathom. Not even my camera lens.

Imagine yourself wading through these cotton balls. You, surely, walk in the softest carpet the world has ever known. You get the feeling of unexplainable euphoria.

This invention of man makes the world so near yet so far.

Below the clouds are the views so different yet so beckoning you to come down and explore it.

The more we get closer, the more excitement we feel.

When everything is clear, mixed emotions enveloped all over you. You begin to search for something familiar but at the same time anxious of what's the world like down there.

Ahh, I shall wait the time until I see, touch, hear, smell and taste everything—the answers to my curiosity—when things look familiar yet strange.
