- No Hagas Tarea; Estás en Chile.Despite the pretty appalling amounts of pollution (or for Sheena, the esmog), I absolute love the way Santiago smells.

- Last Week in BrightonA.R. finally arrived in Brighton and my arms last Saturday. It's been so good to be reunited after three months. In some ways time has gone by absurdly quickly but in other ways I was desperate to show her everything. Posted by broden in an ocean apart | Jul 30, 2010

- And so begins Part Two of our adventure...Schools out! This last week was pretty crazy what with presentations, recitations, papers, and finals, but we're done!

- Kids and their bikesWell, I was only just writing about reaching the halfway mark and now it seems I am almost already two thirds through.

- Between staying and leavingIn exactly one week, I'll be flying back home. Right now, I'm torn between counting down the days and wanting to delay the departure. I know I'm making the right decision to leave now. I'm feeling happier now than Posted by Evil1 in My year in China | Jul 28, 2010
- Foshan FootworkRain fell lazily, washing away the feeble sunshine and any expectation of a dry Foshan outing. Huddled beneath our shared umbrella, Jake and I dodged haphazard puddles and the weaving paths of poncho-clad scooter drivers. We'd set out to find Posted by rovingduo in Roving Duo | Jul 28, 2010

- In the land of China, they don't go to Church on Sunday.In case you couldn't guess, we watched (or rather, started) Forrest Gump this morning. We also had a test (I got a 96) and went through a couple more lessons in our books. Chu was our teacher for the day, Posted by MAx1992 in China 中国 2010 | Jul 27, 2010

- Wuzhen and HangzhouI have to start with the language bonus: I found out what Tiananmen means today. It literally translates to "Heaven Safe Door." I couldn't help but laugh at the irony.

So yeah, I've taken over 1000 pictures so far in my three weeks here. I don't really know how I could've taken so much either. But my Facebook will crash for sure trying to upload these when Posted by jennhuynh in 我的夏天在中国 | Jul 25, 2010
