The Chinese #Dream

​The Art students at my university are allowed to paint random building walls here on campus to show off their skills.  This one is dedicate to tee Chinese president – lots of support and nationalism here!

Life in #China – Singing at #KTV is Awesome :)

I ❤ KTV and #music!! It’s the Chinese name for #Karaoke .  My students and I like to Visit this one because It’s cheaper during the day.  Usually in China, you can go during the day for a lot less than at night. Sometimes you can get a free room as long as you buy a certain amount of snacks 😄 It’s a great way for the students to practice their #esl 😃 This one just updated their pictures outside!

Highlighting History, Shadowing Mystery

Found this while wandering down Tianzifang in Shanghai. Tianzifang is a maze of buildings in the old French Concession area.

Did you ever read one of the old books where someone got lost in the streets of China?  Going farther and farther back into the twisting buildings built one overlapping the other, up and up and up.  And below it all, the stranger moves deeper into an under-land of small one room stores and little, elderly artists and laborers selling their services?  Tianzifang is one of the magical places, full of mystery, history, and a touch of the mystical.
