As I am now nearing the end of September, the climate of Dalian has for the most part remained constantly humid and around 75 F as an average for the last month, but last week was the first day of fall and this week it has been a bit chilly outside.
It is now “the holidays” for China because there is a national workers holiday starting September 28th and lasting until October 10th. I will be going Qinghai province on vacation with my roommate, Dillon. Qinghai is one of the largest and least populated provinces of China and is located on the Tibetan plateau. Nicknamed “The roof of the world” and home to lake Qinghai which is the second largest salt water lake in the world. I will be flying into the city of Xinning after a five hour direct flight from Dalian. The round trip flight cost was 2,800 Yuan for myself which is not bad.
Last weekend was the 65th anniversary of Liaonning Normal University. They set up a massive stage in a day near the middle of campus and on Saturday put on a two hour production with various acts. Even though it was all in Chinese, It was still very interesting to see.
