寻根

Lol I was going to post my travel journal here but I found out that wordpress is blocked in china…… and I didn’t bring my physical journal so I ended up writing on all the random hotel paper. But now that I’m out of the great firewall I can finally blog again!

It’s funny cos I brought 1984 to read on the trip then I realised the similarities (the censorship, cctv everywhere, street lights that flash whenever a car drives past) but ok 1984’s is way more extreme and boo the ending D:<

Anyway this trip was super different from my family’s usual ones cos it was on a tour group consisting of my extended family, there were 15 of us so we went around in a big bus and had a tour guide and the itinerary was all planned already. The main point of the trip was to go and visit our 乡下 in 莆田 (yknow like putien the restaurant), but we went to some other places too. There were so many cameras among us, I decided to avoid taking all the standard shots that other people were taking heh so I only took 550 photos in the 10 days!

一线天- it’s basically a very narrow path between 2 big rocks and there’s like one line of sunlight coming in. quite cool but it was super crowded and everyone was trying to squeeze in cos you can only go in single file T__T
