Soaking Wet

And still smiling…

The first thing I remember from this picture is how WET I was. By this time I was drenched, completly and totally soaked through. I wore four layers and a scar and every last one was a soppy mess by this picture. Now I am sure you all are wondering WHY IS SHE WEARING A SCARF. Well in case you had not seen my pictures of Beijing earlier, let me tell you that pollution is a nightmare all over China, and no matter where I go I always bring a scarf just so I have something to sheild my face from the smog. Thankfully, up in the mountains the air was clear and fresh. However, I was still very happy to have it because it kept my neck warm through the journey.

The second thing I notice is how yellow my teeth have gotten in such a short time, I know its vain, but really its been 3 weeks and already I look like I have been drinking tea and smoking like a Chinese person for 3 years. First on the list of grocery purchases for the week is some whitening mouthwash and toothpaste.

Lastly I notice the mountains. They are fantastic. If you look closely you can see the wall snaking through the background.

  1. You don’t look wet at all, especially with that big smile on your face or is that a grimace? lol What are you drinking or eating that is causing your teeth to turn yellow?

  2. BTW, do you speak Mandarin, or do you teach in English only?

    • my Mandarin is really bad, I don’t have the ability to hear the tones. BUT I can recognize characters so I can look at the signs and read where I am going on maps so that helps SIGNIFICANTLY.

  3. I miss u Ms.B lol our Math teacher is soooo boring ❤ ❤ ❤

    • I agree with Ariel… We are learning the same stuff we learned last year with you! We are just now learning inequalities! I remember doing all that work last year on inequalities and now we have to do it again! LOL! XD
