#blueraspberry and #orange #fruit drink! Tastes like blue #popsicles 😜 Puts me in the #island mood! A good thing since it’s freezing.
The #Chinese concept of #icecream and my idea of a delicious treat are not the same 😂 This was a Chinese popsicle my student likes – green tea with a red bean filling. Somehow not quite the same as good old fashioned Chocolate 😜

Blowing #bubbles soft and fine! ❤ The people are returning from #SpringFestival at last! My favorite #cafe (The Bridge Cafe) reopened finally with #coffee, hot #tea, #carbonara, and #pizza! And they brought their #turtles with them!!! 😊 He is blowing bubbles at me 😜

“Great people will always be mocked by those who feel smaller than them. A lion does not flinch at laughter coming from a hyena. A gorilla does not budge from a banana thrown at it by a monkey. A nightingale does not stop singing its beautiful song at the intrusion of an annoying woodpecker. Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower. Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud,
it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.”
Happy Lantern Festival! Tonight is the night (15 days after #ChineseNewYear ) when the Chinese light paper lanterns and send them up to the sky.
My picture wasn’t very good 😭 I’ll post a better one later. But the #moon sure was pretty! Here in Zhengzhou, we have the highest smog records for the country, so the moon is a rare night. Today was perfect for the festival! Clear skies, brisk air, and a good wind. 😄
Wishing you all the best and a great upcoming year! 🍀

Haha!😜 Visited a 5⭐ hotel this weekend and found that the bathroom was entirely see-through. Embarassing, no?!? Asked my students why and got this lovely response ‘Many hotels in China do this. It’s very common. Because sometimes the men, they come with a strange woman. Or two. Or different ones. And when they go to the bathroom, all their money is taken. So this way they can see and be safe.’ 😒 😂 That’s hilarious. A five star hotel arranges its bathroom around keeping rich men safe from their ‘women’. Sad. Very, very sad. #lifeinchina #china #travel #humor #abroad, #whataworld
