I’m almost positive this puppy did the hike in half the time it took me. #zhedonggrandcanyon #ninghai #zhejiang #goldenweek #bambooforest #宁海 #浙江 #国庆节 #竹林 (at 浙东大峡谷)

Enthusiastic tourists cheering at my Caucasian travel mates who were swimming in the canyon. I was asked many times what it was like being a tour guide to westerners and which part of Ninghai I was from. #assimilation #zhedonggrandcanyon #ninghai #zhejiang #goldenweek #浙东大峡谷 #宁海 #浙江 #国庆节 (at 浙东大峡谷)

There are probably at least ten times the number of people shown in this photo actually waiting in line. (Most likely an under estimation.) Most people I met here thought I must be from Ninghai or Ningbo because only locals generally know about this place. With that in mind, there were still this many people here. I always find it incredible how many people are actually in China. #zhedonggrandcanyon #ninghai #zhejiang #goldenweek #浙东大峡谷 #宁海 #浙江 #国庆节 (at 浙东大峡谷)

The canyon was her catwalk. The statement was made and noted. Kill it no matter what. #zhedonggrandcanyon #ninghai #zhejiang #goldenweek #thisischina #streetfashion #minifashion #浙江 #国庆节 #这是中国 (at 浙东大峡谷)

It goes without saying, there are many aspects of the culture here that are challenging for me but at the same time, I find that I connect with a lot of people because we have a common heritage and hence there is a bond. I grew up spending hours playing with friends in the forest behind my parents’ home. We’d spend our after school hours exploring or making up games. You rarely see children here playing outside and even more rare, a child playing with another child. You can see it in more rural areas but most children in cities spend their after school time studying or taking more classes. I was thrilled to see kids playing in the canyon. They pretended they were cowboys and pirates and actually played with wildlife. (Wildlife is another rarity here.) While I do not think the preying mantis survived play time, this was a refreshing sight nonetheless. #zhedonggrandcanyon #ninghai #zhejiang #goldenweek #thisischina #宁海 #浙江 #国庆节 #这是中国 (at 浙东大峡谷)

Making a run for it. Truth be told, my debilitating fear of heights made me jealous of this kid’s makeshift leash. #zhedonggrandcanyon #ninghai #zhejiang #goldenweek #thisischina #浙东大峡谷 #宁海 #浙江 #国庆节 #这是中国  (at 浙东大峡谷)
