“Today I feel particularly happy, I’m really happy, I have not seen so many people, so many friends and relatives for a long time, more than 100 days ago I didn’t not know whether I can make it or not” Guo Chuan said in an interview in excitement, “I do not know whether I’m in a dream, seems like I am still in a dream.”
