Fitting that I happened to be wearing my #Resist shirt: As we were leaving Jiayu Pass, we came across a stone commemorating Lin (same last name as me!) Zexu, a scholar who led the destruction of the opium Britain illegally pumped into China, triggering the Opium Wars, after which he was exiled to Xinjiang and passed through here. He's since become a symbol of the #Chinese Resistance against Western imperialism. ✊ (There's also a statue of him in NYC's Chinatown.) Jiayuguan, #Gansu, China. Photo by my mom. ^_^
Can't quite remember what was up with the headscarf, likely either hiding the bloodied nose plugs (acute extreme nose bleeding) or trying to hide the smell from the local meat market. #xinjiang #urumqi #westernchina #china #travel
A doorway in one of the fortified walls at the stunning Jiaohe Ruins, a large 2000yr old Chinese archaeological site located in the Yarnaz Valley, west of the city of Turpan, Xinjiang Region, Western China.

Super interesting paper at the Silk Road conference - the Xiaohe burial mound, from about 1800 BC in western China. Those sticks are the tombstones - wooden ones standing up in the ground.

Candid of my dad when we had some free time in Jiayuguan and he and I went to take a photo of a sculpture and subsequently ended up exploring the most serene and peaceful public park where we hopped on stones to cross little streams and came across seniors playing Chinese opera in shady pavilions. #Gansu, #China.

Mini adventures through rural China #tb
Met some really amazing people in this city and this is exactly why I love traveling so much - to make friends from all around the globe, sharing culture and experiences, the only common language we need to speak is open-mindfulness. .
One afternoon our new friends from Italy was taught the craft of Chinese tea by mom, and in return they showed us the seriousness of Italian espresso. We all got a little high on caffeine and travel life ❤️🤘🏼🎒
