New York, New York (3)

Harvard University I’ve seen peddlers in almost every place I’ve visited. This man in the picture (doing coffee business) makes his way around the city with his small handcart. He was a music major from Australia. I just don’t understand, why is there such a tension between peddlers and urban management staff in China?  Continue reading “New York, New York (3)”

New York, New York (2)

9-11 Memorial. The sorrow was temporary for an outsider, but permanent for their families. Paid my respect to the heroes. In many parts of NY, it’s become hard to tell whether you are in China or the U.S. All the Chinese people, Chinese languages, and Chinese lifestyles going around here……   Metropolitan Museum of Art,Continue reading “New York, New York (2)”

New York, New York (1)

Started a new journey in the Big Apple! This was a show for graduate students of Fashion and Society at Parsons. Parsons is one of the best fashion institutions indeed – most of these graduates’ designs are good enough to enter the market. Their works show strong personal styles but are also very practical; theyContinue reading “New York, New York (1)”

Adventures in Israel (3)

Dead Sea Scrolls was in Qunram, which became one of the most important archeological discoveries in the 20th Century! This discovery shocked the world and improved the accuracy of when the earliest Bible was stored — even before Jesus was born.

Adventures in Israel (2)

A wooden boat from 1st Century (found in Galilee) and the Museum of Fishing. Back then, fisherman is a quite decent occupation, and there were actually some people who worked in the fishing industry in the first disciples of Jesus. It must be a lot courageous to make such a decision – giving up the oldContinue reading “Adventures in Israel (2)”

Adventures in Israel (1)

Starting a trip to Israel. For most Chinese people, Israel is a land of mystery. I was mostly concerned with safety issues before I left for this country. My team chose to travel via EL AL Israel Airline because it was the only flight that went straight to Israel. My first reaction was, would it reallyContinue reading “Adventures in Israel (1)”

Exploring Morocco (4)

A blue garden in Marrakech, Morocco! Designed by a master in the 1920s. Blue is really the most beautiful color I’ve ever seen in my daily life, and it’s everywhere in this garden! A big collection of rare animals and plants are reserved in the garden. In the 1980s, the famous designer Yves Saint LaurentContinue reading “Exploring Morocco (4)”

Exploring Morocco (2)

A “blue town” in Rabat! The navy blue and snowy white worked perfectly together and created a breathtaking scenery. With little influence from the outside world, this town has kept medieval styles and traditions in some ways. The meandering lanes leads me toward tranquility, allowing me to escape from the noises and crowds in the city.Continue reading “Exploring Morocco (2)”

Exploring Morocco (1)

Morocco is a relatively conservative country in the Muslin world. When we were sauntering on the streets at night, we surprisingly found that only men were enjoying a cup of tea and chatting with each other in the square. We felt hundreds of eyes staring at us as we passed by, and it just madeContinue reading “Exploring Morocco (1)”

My Trip to Turkey (7)

A real show of world diversity — dresses from around the world! It is not about having silky skin or attractive figure; the happiness I see in these people has already taken over me!   The world is losing its diversity… wherever I go, I feel like all the countries and the people of thoseContinue reading “My Trip to Turkey (7)”
