Very well written! It really sounds like quite a nice house. I’m surprised Maria only charged $150/night!

出了国才发现,homo特别多。国内对于homo太不包容了,很多人出来就是因为性取向问题。

Nice to see your updates SP :) Glad you had a good time.

Glad you enjoyed this. I have not celebrated Thanksgiving for over 30 years. In some ways, the USA feels like a foreign country to me.

Sounds like you’ve got your work cut out for you. But do you like the feeling of being deep underwater—are you sure you want to dive?

Interesting. So will you go diving in the Philippines?

虎跳峡,名字很美,背后有个美丽的故事吧。当然,也可能是有巧合的因素,比如 外国人去了那里,然后一传十十传百。我遇到的外国人去北、上、西安、云南比较多,没听过谁去虎跳峡。 又跟着你学到好玩儿的表达了,当电灯泡 的英语,“当第三只轮子”;法语里面是“提着烛台”。
