Day 5: Bikes
The highlight of today was being able to experience the new bikes for Microcampus. Our large bike-trail lasted two hours, and went through a variety of terrains and vistas. We rode around the border of Lake Erhai and saw numerous trees growing out of the clear, blue water that had once been farmland. On that large strech of paved road, we all pedaled as hard as we could in attempt to get Time in Zone for our Wellness plan. It was tiring, of course, to be biking on hard gravel and random bits of rocks while also avoiding the many dips and dives of the ground. However, it was from this experience that I gained an even better understanding of my surroundings of Xizhou in which I will be living in for another two or so weeks.
