Today we went to JiXi. Before going, I tried buying a fan and ended up losing a hundred RMB and didn't get a fan. I ended up getting the money back, but today was very hectic.
When we went on the tour, we learned about fengshui (风水), the balance of energy in one's surrounding. I learned about this in Chinese school, but I never got to see a residency with extremely good balance before. There were mountains, and then a plot of land where the buildings and crops were, and there was a river and more mountains. The tour guide pointed out that the entire place was in the shape of a rowboat.
Afterwards, we went hiking and climbed the rocks. It was quite fun, however it was extremely hot.
Jennifer you are such a wonderful student. I admire you
JiXi, a a special place in Anhui: JiXi not only represented highest achievement of Anhui business, but also represented highest level of Anhui civilizatiin in Qing dynesty and contemporary China. It is a wonderful experience, Jennifer!
I can understand your feeling. I am impressed with your handling of the difficult situation and can promptly resume your enthusiasm with your peers on the camp. I am particularly impressed with your understanding and interpretation of Fengshui, I must admit that you understand the meaning of Fengshui better than me, although I have been immersed in the Chinese civilization decades longer than you.
Life is filled with sorrors and joys, anger and pleasure, misunderstandings and forgivingness. I believe you can handle all of these by yourself, which is a necessary step for your growing-up, although it is probably not perfect, considered by some adults.
