A Year In Zhangzhou

I celebrate a year in Zhangzhou

I’ve been in Zhangzhou one year? Who can believe it? Seriously?

I arrived in Zhangzhou on 21st February 2012, via Xiamen airport of course.

It’s a bit crazy how fast the year has flown to be honest. My room used to look at little bare desk and now has pictures. desk

In Zhangzhou I’ve had scorching hot weather

Mostly, Zhangzhou has been an awesome city to live in and I look forward to enjoying the last 6 months while  it lasts!

Next week look out for an extra special post about my 18 months in China. I’ll be publishing parts of my scrapbook I’ve been keeping during that time, as I’ve just finished one notebook!


One on the left is the one I started on 29th August 2011 and will get sent home.
