Having a blast in Fujian! Highlights: drinking tea with local natives, riding motorcycles down country roads, eating vegetables grown less than a mile away, hanging out with my cousin’s Yale alum friends, meeting a bunch of amazing design/creative types here to be inspired by Tulou, and waking up at 6am to enjoy the mornings. It’s been so refreshing to get away from the city: no cell phone, limited internet access, and fresh countryside air.
Some highlights below- see Part 2 here!
