Quick glimpse into our Thanksgiving this year✨We woke up to see the fog beginning to lift from West Lake, wandered through the streets of Hangzhou and sampled so many street food vendors I lost count🤣 I also found the most delicious steamed bun of my life and have been been craving it since. The afternoon was exploring the pagodas and islands around West Lake and then we headed back to the hotel to watch the sun set on our first Thanksgiving abroad. Dave, ever the sentimental one, had us just be silent and take it all in for a few minutes and I was so overwhelmed with gratitude. Thankful for him, the big world, each of you and all I’ve been given❤️

Blink and you’ll miss the face change.
Face-changing—Bian Lian in Chinese—is a fundamental, ancient art of Sicuan opera.
Performers swap masks instantaneously, over and over and over again. We took these photos within a matter of seconds!
Similar to magic in the West, practitioners of this art have always been tight-lipped about how they do it exactly.
