So you know how I went to China - well, I imagined China like just another country kind of like maybe America. Well when I got here, I definitely proved myself wrong! It was so much different - totally not what I expected. So, you step outside and pretty much get blasted with hot air. The sites are pretty cool, but down in the city it's a little different. There are tropical trees, stores like so close to our apartment it's unimaginable. It's so sad how you see so many stray cats and dogs. I mean I expected probably a couple, but wherever you walk you see one stray cat or dog.
A couple of weeks ago we climbed a mountain. It was stairs, not just a normal path - stairs! The whole way up! It was so tiring but the views were amazing.
Overall, China is a pretty interesting country. Pretty soon we're taking this awesome trip to Yangshuo, a beautiful mountain village. There's kayaking, biking and swimming and we'll have our own huge cabin with an upstairs. I'll definitely post some pictures so be expecting some.
For now, here are some pictures that me, Emma and my Mom have been taking.
