So far, Ive eaten at quite a few Chinese restaurants.1 Japanese restaurant, and a couple western places where I enjoyed having pork in my meal. Ive gone to the bell and drum towers, the Muslim quarter, and have even gone to a Latin club with a live band. The music was wonderful and I was pleasantly surprised by the dancing. They apparently have some good instructors here!I also went to a hostel to enjoy an American breakfast. That was nice and the hostel was cool.If staying in Xian, Id recommend it as a cool way to travel.
The people are cool.There arent many (and thats being generous) black people here and some of the kid's looks/reactions are funny/cute. A couple of them have spoken as they realize I speak English. They dont look as much as one might think.Nor do they point or talk as they do in AD.They could be saying something in Chinese,idk, but at least they are discreet,haha.
What else?Oh, they are taller than I thought. The women have nice legs,must be from all the walking,and they are all dressed like they are going on a date or something-too cute! Pets are a new thing and they carry around small,well groomed dogs. Grandparents take care of the children for the most part and you will see people outside doing things from playing games, doing exercises, or just talking at all times of the day.Driving is a mess.The traffic rules seem crazy and if you didnt know any better, you would think all sides have the green light at the same time.Just because your cross walk light is on doesnt mean cars arent coming from you at multiple directions! And weather-it.is.HUMID! Like low country, Savannah/Charleston humid.Made me miss AD heat when I first arrived. Its extreme when MY curls fall!
Anyway,thats week one in a nutshell.I kind of suck because I didnt write about Nepal.Maybe Ill back track.Its not too late
