I'm still not really sure what day or time it is, I just know that I'm super tired. But luckily we get to sleep soon! Everyone I met is awesome, I really like the group of students that I'm with, and my roommates are great. The city is so much fun and the people are very nice. It's super busy, the driving is terrifying! The lanes are more like suggestions than regulations and pedestrians absolutely do not have the right of way. A group of students that are native to Chengdu took us out to see the city and get dinner. They were SO nice and so helpful, and literally some of the funnest people I have been around in a while. I got to try a lot of different Chinese food today, Japanese tofu, a mystery dish with potatoes in it, tofu soup, mushroom ears...etc. Overall I love it here judging on day 1!
My latest travels are taking me through four countries in three months. I'll spend a month studying yoga in India, then the following month backpacking through major India cities from North to South. I'll then fly to New Zealand for a Taiwanese wedding, and spend 12 days enjoying a few cool spots on both the north and south islands. After this I will spend Songkran in mid-Thailand before traveling south to the Thai islands surrounding Phuket and Krabi. Lastly, I'll head to the Indonesian island of Bali for a week before journeying home. ... full info
