So, about my trip to China...

China... is terrible. Don't get me wrong here, I really really REALLY loved all the history attributed to the old cities and whatnot, but other than that, the country has virtually nothing going for it. Tianjin smells like a factory and everyone wears masks. Beijing is overcrowded to the point where people actually get injured just from walking on sidewalks and being so cramped. Hong Kong wasn't SO bad... I guess. The city is supposedly laden with heavy crime, but I saw nothing of that sort. I enjoyed the lights it had to offer, but that's about it.

The food. Well, where to start. Imagine your backyard. Now think of any animals, plants, mushrooms, etc. that you may see back there. That's about what was on my dinner plate. Anything and everything you can imagine is 5 star cuisine in China.

Gotta go to class now, will add more to this later!


  1. have a chinese friend that went to live in china for a year. she hated it also.

  2. Sounds like an interesting experience.
