Zhang never did turn up and Alexander only left the airport when he was rushed to hospital with exhaustion.
Another photo taken later shows him being pushed along in a wheelchair with an IV drip in his arm.
Zhang contacted Hunan TV after hearing about what had happened. She explained that Cirk had sent her a photo of his flight information before his departure, but she had not understood the meaning of the picture. Before, they had decided they were going to wait a year until meeting, so evidently the spontaneity of Cirk’s visit came as quite a shock. As always, communication is the key to a good relationship.
She says that she was unable to meet Cirk when he arrived in Changsha because she was out of town, undergoing cosmetic surgery in Zhengzhou, Henan province.
Zhang told reporters that she is still interested in maintaining a relationship with Cirk and hopes to get back in contact with him. Meanwhile, Cirk has returned home with a heavy heart after his failure of a surprise visit.
