Hot Water Palace! The building where Chinese students fill up their giant hot water bottles because there’s no hot water in the rooms. I decided it looks like a palace.


my favorite snack: Jasmine tea and watermellon- all for about $1

Let’s feed this stray cat a popsicle!

apparently cats like lime popsicles

Knockoff Ice Peak orange soda

A wedding at our “student only” hotel- typical
