Exploring Kunming

On June 16, everyone split up and went on a scavenger hunt. We split up into 3 groups of 3 and one group of 4, and were given a list of things and places we had to find and go to. My group successfully completed all the mandatory actions, which included translating Chinese words and walking ourselves around the city for 4 hours. My group’s 2 favorite places were a temple and a flea market. The temple was a Confucian Temple, and many older men and women gathered to smoke and play cards and Chinese chess. The flea market sold many different kinds of Chinese items like jewelry, collectibles, and tea. My group enjoyed walking around here for an hour, and we enjoyed being able to explore Kunming for ourselves.
