Beijing Bliss

Posted: August 23, 2010 in Uncategorized

The camp has long ended, I took a short detour to Harbin and played with the tigers, but alas, ended up back where I started: Beijing, to meet up with all my summer campatriots (I just made that word up, like it? that I had the pleasure of serving with in Inner Mongolia. We had 4 days to ‘kick it,’ Americans in China style, and it was a much needed break/debriefing for all of us. Here are some highlights of Beijing……and there were many:

Saw some cool bathroom signs at our youth hostel. I’m not really sure how it all works, but I’m pretty sure that’s not it.

We did KTV, a must in China. Many a 80’s jam were sung that eve.

We ate fried scorpions. Mmmm, crunchy. Check this video out if you want to see if I really ate it or not.

I don’t even know why I added this pic, I just like it. This is right before I left Harbin to go to Beijing. These are my dudes Jack and Federer sporting their new Minnesota duds. Gotta represent! Pray for these fellas.

I’m currently in South Korea, due to my visa running out, but I will be flying back on the 25th of August, where I start teacher training. I’m praying that God will provide me a solid community there, and some brothers to live with and serve with. Your prayers are always appreciated, and really got me through this summer! More blog posts to come soon!!!
