Sojourn touches the heart of a blind man (3)

He also met another kind soul, a Thai backpacker, who sent him to a bus station, bought him a ticket and some food. "The man touched my eyes, gave me a hug and said 'God will protect you'. I was touched by his kindness," Cao recalls.

In Cambodia, he met a Belgian man in a youth hostel who spoke Chinese. The warmhearted man not only helped Cao with his daily needs but also accompanied him around the city. He also gave Cao some English notes, such as "help me to book a room" and "help me to go back to China", so that Cao could show these to others when necessary.

"I want to express my gratitude to those who helped me throughout my journey. Although I don't know their names or speak their languages, they held my hand and took me to bus stations, toilets, restaurants and hotels," he says.

Cao is currently looking for a job to save enough money to travel to places with more Chinese, such as Singapore and Malaysia.
