Day1: The Never-Ending
Day one was pretty eventful. A 45 minute car ride to the airport, after waking up an hour before that. Then a wonderful breakfast at the airport, consisting of a granola bar, and three of Kelly's wonderful fudge brownies. Now for the fun part, a quick 4 hour plane ride with the robotically abnormal (but still pretty great) Sean, while we watched Grownups 2 and laughed so loud Mr T complained... We landed shortly after the movie and a reading of the newspaper. Then it was over. Not. We thought "Okay, the hard part is done, now all we have to do is sit on the bus!" For seven hours. I never knew that seven hours could be so long and uneventful, but sadly it was. At first I sat by myself, just watching the world go by, and surprisingly, loving learning about history, and all these different sorts of stuff that I usually would not be interested in. A break later we switched seats and I ended up slightly smaller that average Diego. It was fun, we talked a bit, he made fun of my height (and other things) and I made fun of his height. After another break we watched my favourite childhood TV show, Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends, that was very fun and I thank him for getting me through that last three hours. When we finally arrived in Xia Guan, Mr T told us all about real estate, and it made me realize how much I do not want to grow up and buy a house. An hour later we arrived at our final destination, Xizhou. We unloaded bags of the bus, then walked to our beautiful home, Yang Zhuo Ran. I was amazed and so shocked, because it was much more beautiful than I expected. We had a great talk with Mr Brian Linden, his wife and son. Then we chose rooms and sat down to an amazing dinner. I especially loved the tofu, chicken, broccoli, rice, basically everything there was. After dinner we discussed some more plans of action, then headed off for the greatest sleep of my life!
