Tell us about your travels this summer.

  • I experienced firsthand the craze and obsession in idol culture, since I worked in the center of the filming studios of the network. Fans would line up outside the buildings hours upon hours before the celebrity arrived on set, even when temperatures soared over 100 degrees, which happened most days.
  • It was also very interesting that most locals could immediately spot that I was a foreigner. For example, I stood out for being tan on purpose and not using an umbrella to shield myself from the sun.
  • Regarding food, I tried stinky tofu, and this food really is not for the faint of heart. The delicacy is enjoyed by many in China. It has a black, crispy outer skin that reveals a greyish silky texture when bitten into. It’s a popular street food, and I could always tell where a vendor would be because I could smell the tofu from a block away.
