Ni hao from China!

Wo jiao Nellie and I have been having a great time in China so far. From the start of the course we were surrounded by gorgeous rolling green hills which made a great backdrop for telling stories and getting to know everyone. Our homestay gave us time to practice our Mandarin and using charades to communicate. In Yubeng we experienced the beautiful nature, sacred waterfalls and seeing pigs and cows wherever we went. It gave us time to reflect and be in a beautiful place. The surrounding mountains were so powerful it was impossible not to stare at them.

We are currently in Dali, trying to navigate the town and speak to the locals

Xie Xie!

Sending love,

Nellie and the Mekong Crew
