Although I miss Taiwan and want to go back as soon as possible, I'm returning to China next month. (I've been back in America for the holidays
.) People have been asking me why I prefer to return to China and I've been having a hard time answering. I know that I find China more exciting than any other place I've ever been, but why?
I've finally settled on using the word "crazy" to describe China. By itself, though, this word doesn't convey enough. Here are some photos of a few of the crazy things I've seen in China.
|The do-it-yourself garbage truck|
|The beautiful street with hundreds of lanterns and no people|
|The park where every tree was painted white|
|The random croquet field (I didn't even know that was a thing)|
|The people dancing at night|
|The huge pile of bricks left in the middle of the street|
|The pet monkey|
|The sheep in the middle of the road|
|The beer-drinking toddler|
|The mysterious giant dog|
|or welders' masks!|
|The cornfield in the middle of the city|
|The piles of locks halfway up the mountain|
|The "Helen Keller" brand sunglasses|
|The "black man" brand toothpaste|
|The Spanish villas|
And then there's the Chinglish
, whose unintentional humor adds hilarity to any trip through the streets of Beijing, the crowds, the insane drivers, and the pollution, which is a challenge but which makes the blue-sky days feel that much more awesome.
If you have an adventurous spirit, you'll never have a dull day in China. I still feel the same excitement about travelling to Beijing as I did the first time
. I can't wait to be back.
