Hello, Tianna here once again!
Today was a day where we inside most of the time, which was really enjoyable! We watched a lot of Chinese people doing Chinese performances, they were beautiful and entertaining, and in some there were funny parts!
We started out our day by going to a place where we learned Chinese culture by watching performances, and we did some arts and crafts, Dad and I made one mask each. There were many performances, they were all very impressive! The first one we saw, it was some older people doing different stuff, my favourite part of that dance was seeing a couple of the women falling into the splits as if it was nothing…and they were older, it was amazing. We got to see a guy karate chop a hard solid rock…obviously there was a trick, my dad saw it but I didn’t.
Next we went and ate at a restaurant for lunch, there were different foods, in one of the platters there were chicken parts…even the head was there, you could tell where the eyes were before they removed them, I was super grossed out. One of the adopted girls at our table decided to try one, she said it was mushy and disgusting, I don’t think anyone else tried it but her.
After we ate, we went to a Chinese art school, we did a few activities that, and others for their faces painted as if they had a mask on. After we switched to another room and watched Chinese dances, they were beautiful, there was also a couple of miming plays. When we left we went to the restaurant to eat dinner, all of us were tired by then, we were told we looked like we were about to fall asleep. The food was delicious, but when it came to desert we saw what looked like a cheese cake but ended up being mashed potatoes with blueberry sauce on top, which was very disappointing.
To end our day we went and watched an acrobatic show, it was beautiful. One of them was men doing flips through hoops, some of the hoops were really high. Another interesting one was, 12 girls on 1 bicycle doing tricks…I was so amazed. There was also a young girl, probably around my age, having little ornaments on her hands, feet, and mouth, and she went from lying on her back to lying on her stomach and back onto her back again, without dropping any of the ornaments, I was super impressed! The one that put everyone at the the end of their chair was the last one, 8 guys on motorcycles, inside a ball, going around and around and around, we all thought they were going to crash into each other since they were crossing each other, I think it amazed every single person in that audience!
Well that’s all for today, good night!
