The decrease in height struck me as a good foto opportunity. 

Woke up this morning at 5am to my first Peruvian earthquake. My bed started shaking and at first I thought I was dreaming about one of those cheap motel beds that vibrates. Then my cell phone and water fell to the floor and every dog within 10 miles started to bark and howl. The shaking lasted about 40 seconds then abruptly stopped, although the dogs continued for another minute or so. Not a bad way to start my Monday morning.

Started studying vocab for the GRE. Figured I should brush up on my English seeing as how that’s what I teach and I suppose it wouldn’t hurt to get an early start preparing for yet another standardized test. 

Shout-out today goes to Mr. Mark Shearer. I hope podiatry school over in that little town of New York isn’t too agonizing. Also hope you got your package, I’d hate for a 37 cent postcard and $1 bracelet to get lost in the mail. Best of luck my man!

This is my travel blog and writing portfolio covering my life in China and my trips around the world, including the food, experiences, people, culture, history, and architecture. Living in Beijing has been an adventure, so here's some insight into one of the world's biggest cities.
