I’m about to leave for 长白山 in Jilin Province for our midterm break (in about 20 minutes!) Nathan, Bryan, and I will (hopefully) be climbing mountains and swimming in hot springs while avoiding North Korea since part of that mountain range and the popular Tian Chi, a lake in the mountain’s center, are partially in North Korea. After a few days there, Bryan and I will be heading down to Ji’an, a World Heritage Site for Korean culture with tombs and remains of 3(!) cities, according to Lonely Planet. Pretty excited to go! And to ride on an overnight train in China for the first time in 14 years.
Will update when I come back! (I know, it’s been way too long…)
