This picture of my host sisters, my host mother and myself was taken in a beautiful park near our home in Chengdu. We had just spent a beautiful Sunday afternoon listening to live, traditional music, playing games, eating, drinking tea and walking through the gardens. They said we were going for a walk and it ended up being a whole day affair. This happened often because planning social events in China is not very common. I loved getting caught in days like this. I could always count on an unexpected adventure when spending time with my host family.
