Faulty translation...I just love having "fresh bag" every day for breakfast.
My new Converse!
My poor shoes :(
If you were to ask me whether I am American or Chinese and only allow me to choose one, I no longer know how to answer. My passport is blue, yes, but my heart is red, and sometimes, especially after my trip to China, it yearns to tap into my shallow Chinese roots; only time and persistence will let them grow deeper.
The above is an excerpt from one of my journals and my attempt at deep writing. I definitely took a longer break from blogging than intended, but I'm glad to say I'm back! I spent all of June in China, and here are my favorite photos from Tonglu. Here we mostly shopped, but our major trips were to go rafting on the local river and climb the DaQi Mountains. I got to ride a rickshaw again, basically hitchhike for a bus on the side of the road, and do some fantastic shopping at rock-bottom prices. I had to throw out my old Converse, but no worries, I got new ones for $6.50! The fresh food was absolutely mouth-watering and the experience was amazing and close to life-changing. I definitely want to spend more time in China with my relatives and learn more Chinese.
Enjoy the photos, I promise to post again soon with pictures from Hangzhou and West Lake!
