The past few weeks has been a big Asian hot mess. Now that I have the whole summer to spend and my borther, Sam has finished his year of study at Tsinghua, we fly first to Beijing. Funnest and weirdest moments of the year so far... I knew China would be crazy but this city is immense in ways my mind still hasn't quite processed... from cultural habits to popular commands of consumerism, I have seen and experienced so much - otherness!
But I will get to that. Traveling series, part 1.
Yes, me and Des: complete foreigners to our motherland, and just as we entered, we stayed under and within that category. So excited to finally get here, can't wait to post on Beijing!
In God we trust,
