We just had a delicious breakfast, some of the options being organic eggs, freshly made pancakes, banana bread, and fruits (it might be the high altitude, or the fact they they're naturally grown, but the banana peel has a slight, slight tinge of orange and the part next to the seeds are orangish instead of brown). The fruits here are great, I wish Shanghai's were organic too. It might seem like a weird question, but does the altitude affect the taste?
Now, I'm sitting on the terrace again, and it's incredibly warm. Blue skies (I know right?), mountains shrouded with mist surrounding us, the village around green farmland- typical Xizhou. (Sunscreen is absolutely necessary here.) It's so quiet, you hear bird calls, wind rustling through trees, and animal calls (birds chirping, roosters crowing, dogs barking). I see snow on the peaks of the mountains. There's no need for an alarm anymore- we heard roosters outside (which Sabrina thought were cows...)! Looking down at the scene, I want to sit here for the whole day, waiting for the sun to go down in a golden glow and the stars to appear again at night. Then wake up tomorrow and do it all again. This is our classroom. Can you believe it?
