Beach

Dongao bay 4:12 pm

I thought I could go swimming but it’s too dangerous. The beach slopes steeply down towards the water, and when a big wave comes sweeping in it’s like a giant trough of water that empties then fills back up in… Continue Reading →

Zhuwei beach, 6:02 pm

The water is a nearly perfect navy blue topped by a faint streak of orange from the warm glowing ball of the setting sun. I lie in the water after my run over the soggy grey sand, letting it cool… Continue Reading →

Beehive Firecrackers

Before I tell about my experience, here is little bit of background. In the 19th century the town of Yanshui was suffering from a cholera outbreak. Locals called on Guan Gong, the god of war, to ward off the decease…. Continue Reading →

Disappointment and wetlands
