Once every semester, our school organizes a “Culture Trip” for us, foreign teachers. For this semester, we went to Kaifeng, one of the Eight Ancient Capitals of China.
It was actually my second time to go there. I decided to go again because the first time I went there it was raining the whole time, and it was freezing cold.
Thankfully, the weather was pleasant this time. So we enjoyed our stroll at the Dragon Pavilion Park (formerly known as the Emperor’s Palace) where they had displays of different kinds of Chrysanthemums for their Chrysanthemum Festival.
Here are some photos I took at the Dragon Pavilion Park:
And here’s one of the selfies I took there: 😂😂😂
On our second day, we drove to the Yellow River Scenic Area where we went sightseeing by cruiser. Then on our stop over (before heading back), some of us enjoyed a moment of horseback riding while others rode a four-wheeler thingy like the one in the picture below. 😄
After lunch, we went hiking/mountain climbing somewhere around the Yellow River Scenic Area. Here are some photos from there:
Of course, there has to be a selfie 😂
And that concludes our Kaifeng weekend getaway!!!
The moment of fun in that adventure was temporary, but the memories shared with friends and colleagues will last for a lifetime, I hope.
Have a great week everyone! 😎
