Dragon fruit. Quite frankly, I’m not even sure I had heard of it before moving to China. Now it is everywhere! It is in drinks, on the street vendors carts, and all over the grocery store. They even cut it for you in a cute, little heart!
Although I have only been here 8 days, I know already that there could be an entire website dedicated simply to the signs here in China. The attempted English and lack of grammar knowledge make them hilarious. I will post more later…
But for now I got a kick out of the name of this beer. Did they even realize?!
So let me begin by saying this: I hate heights, I hate elevators. They make me dizzy, sick, nauseas, and anxious.
Which brings me to my next statement: That fear doesn’t work in China. It is filled with skyscrapers stacked upon skyscrapers stacked upon skyscrapers. There is no room for anything else.
My apartment, thankfully, is ONLY 13 stories up (I live in a building of 35). Crazy to believe that a week ago I was having a panic attack at the thought of my apartment being 7 stories up.
China is forcing me to overcome fears and to find out that really, it’s not that bad! In fact there are some pretty darn amazing views. Amazing what happens when you are forced out of your comfort zone.
As AWOLNATION puts it “never let your fear decide your fate.”
