zaijian, China. I'll be back soon?

So here I am again in Starbucks, on one last internet run before I leave tomorrow. It’s weird, oh so weird… I don’t miss LA at all. Or America for that matter. I just want to see people. and eat hummus and feta cheese and drink persian tea and shoot people again.

I’ll be back on here posting photos and the final vide recap (sometime next week!), but until then, zaijian wode pengyou!
