Alisha Explores Taipei

Alisha Lives in Shanghai for 1 Month: An Update

Some days, I forget that I'm living in a foreign country where I don't know the language and I don't know the city. Some days, I feel like I've been smacked in the face with China telling me "YOU ARE A FOREIGNER. WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE" And most of the days, I somehow get... Continue Reading →
