Day 2: First Day in Xizhou
First day actually in Xizhou! Today we were able to go around the actual village and visit a few places. We met a lot of Mr. Yang's and had lunch outside of Yang Zhuo Ran in the square. I think the highlight for my day today was the horse carriage ride. We got to go very close to the river and got to see parts of the village we couldn't see before. The person who took us there was also called Mr. Yang and his horse was called Apple. He was very friendly and nice to us. According to him, that day was the worst day he had experienced since he was a boy because it was very hazy. However if that was a day in Shanghai, it would have been considered a very nice sunny day instead of a very bad day. I was very surprised of the fact that the people there were very open and friendly to us.
