This journal documents the experience of traveling back to where one is from. The only way to learn is to become part of the movement. With this collection of photos and writings, I hope to retain instances that are special during my stay in China (mainly Northern and Eastern China). If I do not capture an instance with my camera, I feel that I am losing a piece of an untraceable memory. Therefore, I take lots of pictures; and I sketch; and I write... By now everything else has become a faint memory. Enjoy.
