Newest development: mei mei and I are sharing this room, yay!
After several times of waking up and falling back to sleep, mei mei and I finally left with the mom and the aunt to eat re pi around 8:40. Now mei mei and I are waiting in line for some delicious smelling walnut bread/cakes. Instead of traveling by car I finally feel we’re in the city of 汉中 (Hanzhong). The mom and pop shop we are breakfast at was cosy, dirty, and everything and more I wanted small shops in china to be.
As much fun I’ve had in the past day, I can’t wait to go back home and do some homework. I feel bad, but I’m hoping we leave a little earlier than planned.
Those walnut cakes smelled way better than they tasted. Too salty and not buttery enough, at least for my standards.
We’re in the car right now, headed towards some place, and I’m a little frustrated over mango juice: there’s a little left over from last night and they won’t let me drink it because it’s “gone bad”. Whether that’s true or not, I wish they’d give me the freedom or at least trust me with my own body. It’s like how they always hold onto your arm when crossing the streets. No thank you, I can make sure I don’t rush onto oncoming traffic myself. Sure it’s all in good intentions but akdkskfhj.
We went to the mausoleum of some general I don’t even remember. The flowers were very pretty, but really we spent most of our time shooting BB guns and a cross bow. I shot three bb’s and hit a bell twice, so I’m pretty much a master.
Now were still in 陕南 (Shaan nan) and at a restaurant awaiting our food. I’ve been entertaining the son by play fighting, which I strangely don’t mind at all.
We finally left around 3:30, and are still nowhere close to home. I’m insanely glad that the new car has seat belts.
