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.
