On Dali and Xizhou

While I was browsing the Shenzhen library, I happened to come across this book, shown in the picture. So I read it, and found it to be fascinating. The book is a compilation of articles that were set in Dali, and detailed their lives and their interactions with the local culture. For example, the second article was about a special dish that roughly translates to spiced and spicy chicken. If you are proficient in Chinese, you might consider reading it.

Some thoughts

After reading a few articles, I realize that while the culture is different, people's lives remained the same. They face the daily struggles and challenges that normal folks face, and have similar attitudes. Which makes it even more interesting to see the effect of culture on people's lives.

 

I am an inquisitive, curious, and eager boy, and enjoy games, books, and learning. I love playing chess, and am pretty good at it (Hopefully). I am also fun, playful and creative. To all those who will be going to Microcampus, looking forward to it. I will try to make my blog posts as thoughtful, new, funky, and entertaining for you guys. Quoting Johann Friedrick von Schiller, "If we do not find anything very pleasant, at least we shall find something new". That is my attitude towards Microcampus.
