Adventures in Yichang

For our first full day in Yichang, we set out in groups for a scavenger hunt around the city. Our group, nicknamed the Dream Team, talked to many of the locals and experienced their lifestyle. We rode around the park on the banks of the river in a three-person bike, witnessing groups of people playing Chinese chess and doing taichi. We stopped in a salon, where Paco emerged with the Chinese character 力,or strength, in his hair. It took many interviews with locals to find the best traditional Yichang cuisine, which consisted of spicy tofu and fish fins. We ended our day walking back to the hostel along the Yangtze river.

Looking forward to more Yichang adventures!
