"Borders? I have never seen one. But I have heard they exist in the minds of some people."
Thor Heyerdahl

I've encountered a seemingly unnatural amount of people on these streets and at some point I couldn't help but take note of all the funny shit they've got written on their shirts. Astonishingly virtually no one rocks clothes with Chinese characters on them. It's all Engrish. A regular tee would have some inspirational/motivational stuff going like:"Always do your best.", "If it's easy everyone would be doing it.", something in that vein. If you've got the words Paris or London somewher you've probably made it good. Even better if both words appear at the same time.
And then there's, well, I don't know how they do that, but "words" composed of randomly concatenated Latin characters. Or mostly regular words garbled into a completely new term.

  • XXXTentacion ||
  • Iron Maiden |
  • Kanye West |
  • Eminem * (Half a point for his logo in "Eminem attractive")

Yes, those really were all the artist shirt I've encountered in 21 days.


And lastly, the award in the category Overall Best Shirt in the Whole Wide Country goes to this girl from Kunming:

Initially I wanted to spend my last day in Yunnan by taking the train West to Dali, but because of the announced torrential rain I decided to ride the subway to its Western terminal called Western Hills Park, just to enjoy some nature as long as the weather would allow. Coincidentally there was also an exhibition hall that I read about earlier so without any second guessing I went in to experience Wheel of Life by Chinese artist Zhang Youkui and Kim Sunjin from South Korea. There were a lot of items shown through a very nice gallery and everything was completely made out of synthetic material.
This one's an excerpt of Nowhere to Go made by Zhang.

Today was a bit weird. Shortly after the morning rain ceded I hit the city and shortly after got stopped by a group of students. They asked me if they could do a short video for their "very good and popular" QQ-or-whatever-channel with me. It was somehow connected to the apparently ongoing Mid-Autumn Festival. Sure thing!
Finally, my moment to go viral! ✌

Folks love their water pipes around here. First time I've seen one was an artifact made from bamboo on display in the Sichuan Museum. Curiously though, they tend to smoke regular cigs through it :O This is the most elaborate one I came across, most of them look like they're built from empty fruit cans.

The park I've shot this in was packed all day. People get their hair cut, play their trick-taking card games, play traditional string instruments and gather round to get entertained by very loud Schlager-like performers. You have to be agile to catch a spot where less than four of those overlap, quite the experience.

Have to give it to these two, hands down best chefs in Qingyang – my part of town. The kitchen is just a niche on an open terrace right above a small street behind my hotel. After my legs are done exploring I show up there in the evenings checking the other guest's bowls and be like:"I'll have what he's having."
