So, to reconnect to the idea that I am actually on the other side of the world from where I grew up, I've decided that Culture Time will be an official thing in my life. I know it sounds childish but I work with children all day so what do you want from me?
Culture Time is something I am doing to see both the old and new culture in Foshan. (I would say China, but as just about anyone can understand, the culture in one city does not reflect an entire country.) Most recently, I got to go to the Buddha Mountain which is beyond incredible. I made a complete fool of myself taking pictures, but the beauty of this site is just too amazing to not try and capture. There are a few pictures below, although they don't do justice. (Shout out to Jeff and Serena-- I saw the dragon and thought of you two immediately!)
I have also come upon an amazing opportunity to work with a really lovely family. I go to the family's home in the evening and am basically a family teacher. This may not sound awesome to some people, but, while this is work, it is also an inside look into family life in China. Not only am I around the immediate family, but with the grandparents and the auntie as well. This is old and new China that I get all at once. It's a little tiring to have a second job, but I leave everyday with a new appreciation for where I am. It's Culture Time every Monday through Friday. And it's pretty cool.
