Pretty coffee, pretty girl, cute cat, beach trip, big steak. It’s all like that. Everyone on social media is having the best day ever, all the time. These days the impossible standards are looking for us behind every icon on our phones. In the same time, our focus on one thing is drastically smaller than ever before. Looking through the stats of websites that I maintain it seems that everyone is reading less and less. I can tell that even for me the process of finding interesting article can be more satisfying than reading the actual article.
Louyang City, place in the middle of China which you don’t need to visit unless you want to go to see Longmen Grottoes. For me it was only 1 hour ride from my hotel so I decided to visit a place. Ticket of 15 $ and 15 minute ride from the entrance to the Hill with electrical bus was a fun experience. For some of Chinese I was big attraction (10+ sneaky photos only in a bus), but okey, when you are in China for 5 months you get used to it. For ones who don’t know Longmen Grottoes is regarded as the most famous and best preserved Budha Cave in China.
Are you struggling to find the best and utilizable gifts for your traveler buddies? (Tough life though).

After almost 4 months in China, I just found out about the Shaolin Temple which is only 1 hour away from my hotel. Since Sunday was my day off, and I had no other plans, I didn’t think twice about going on a little trip. Luckily, organizing trips like this in China is not so hard because everyone is connected through an app called weChat.
Imagine that you are walking into the movie complex, where every movie is about you. You are the main star but directors are people which spend time with you. On the first silver screen you watch a movie which is directed by your mother, after 10 minutes you live a room wondering about what she is talking. On the second screen there is a movie directed by your brother, on the third one by your partner, on fourth by your boss. You go in and out without believing to your eyes.
