    Last Stop: Jinghong, Xishuangbanna // 最后一个目的地:西双版纳景洪

    Hot, tropical, humid, and weary all come to mind when I think of our experience in Jinghong. The city is not a major tourist destination, it seems. The people were not overly friendly towards us. The fruit was extremely fresh, but the city itself didn’t seem to have too much. There is a sizable population of minorities here, mostly Thai (Dai) minority, and the cultural differences are apparent in architecture and food. We probably could have done without this stop, but it was still fun to see. And I got to swim in the Mekong!

    The Tea of Hangzhou // 杭州著名的茶叶

    Hangzhou is well known for producing a special kind of green tea known as 龙井茶叶, which, for the most part, is grown and processed within the city limits. Cresting the hills surrounding West Lake are terraced rice plantations which sprawl across the stoutest of hills and tallest of mountains. I didn’t buy any this time around because the tea is quite expensive (1,000RMB per pound, about 350RMB for 50g), but I was able to taste it for free and it’s noticeably different from average green tea. 

    I would say that the rolling plantations surrounding West Lake match its beauty and add an aesthetic unique to Hangzhou.

Our beautiful campus at ECNU! It was such a nice day out so we took a break from reading for classes to walk around. There are so many stray cats on campus, and we followed them around and eventually ended up here.
