葛蘭特李的 中國隨記 #23 2020疫情前的東京

2012-14年讀美國馬里蘭MBA時我跟我的美國與日本室友曾約定過,六年過後的2020夏天,我們要一起相聚東京,體驗奧運,暢談人生。

六年前,我們三人分別處在不同的人生階段,美國室友Grayson Ross是大學三年級的美國engineer主修兼樂團bass手,德國血統、馬里蘭長大的21歲小伙子。 Jimpei Harada我的日本室友,是34歲的東京本地人,在日本銀行工作過十年,玩過樂團,聰明低調,煮昆布鍋超好吃,沒事會一個人在東京近郊騎腳踏車閒晃。而我呢,台北人,29歲熱情熱血喜歡打籃球,連續兩年在學校打了一堆籃球比賽,整天參加商業創新競賽跟roadtrip。

那時的我們覺得,2020年夏天,經過MBA跟大學畢業之後的六年人生歷練,再相聚,我們會用全新的視野跟身份來交流。

男子漢之間的約定,想起來就很有趣。

但沒想到,新冠狀病毒改變了這一切…。
