Hey there! Sorry I havent been on for a long time! I would say I have been busy, but really I have no excuse, I just haven’t gotten around to it.

Last week I was on CHINA ALIVE, which may be the best part of the year. I went to Tong Lu, China, The most beautiful place in China. China Alive is a week where we get away from our parents, go somewhere in China, experience the culture, and most of all, have fun. So I think the best way to tell you about my trip is to go through it day by day, which might sound boring, but trust me, its not.

Day 1: We got on the bus at 8:00, and got to Tong Lu at about 12:30. It was a long bus ride, full of singing and laughter, HannahPower:TongLu:Rollingand lots of funky jokes. When we arrived in Tong Lu we got off the bus, and walked into a beautiful restaurant, when we sat at the table we got to eat lots Tong Lu specialties, and they was delicious! After that we got back on the bus for 15 minutes and went to the bottom of Da Qi mountain. Then it was time for the hike, I wasn’t really looking forward to hiking, but afterwards I was glad I went. We started to hike up and I really got to see how gorgeous the Tong Lu mountains were. We hiked for a while before reaching the beautiful green plants and blue water. There were so many photo opportunities, and only they can really explain how beautiful it was. As they say, a picture is worth one thousand words! When we reached the top of the mountain, we knew it would take hours to walk back down, so we decided to take the fast way down, the roller-coaster! Well, I dont think I can really say roller-coaster, more like fast crappy Chinese ride that was way more fun than you would think coaster type thing. I got on with, Joon Soo, Kaitlyn, Aniketh, and me. You pushed the levers down to go fast and pulled them to break. Guess what we did the whole way? Top speed of course! I was a blast! When we reached the bottom we got to play at a wooden play ground. That was really fun, especially being at a playground right in the middle of the mountain. Finally we ended our exiting hike, and went to the hotel. My roomie, Kaitlyn and I went for an explore around the Villa, and thats when we really found out how big it was! I was instantly in awe! It was high up walkways that lead into the cabins, and the reception was in a cabin not in a classy building. It was amazingly unique. After dinner we played an exiting game of hide and seek all around the villa. I was running around with Adeena, and we both felt like spies! I loved it so much!
