When cleaning up the teacher’s area goes well....my Chinese coteacher and students’ parents wrote this letter behind my back and gave it to the principal asking them to do whatever they can for me to stay another year. Swipe for the English version (I have two students that only speak English and two Chinese American students). It feels good to be appreciated....let’s see what I can negotiate now 😂😂. The parents run the schools in China....so I’m in there lmao!

Timeout Chronicles: This is the difference between a kid who never gets in trouble and is scared out of her mind and a kid who puts himself on timeout because he’s always all over the place....I am through with him until Monday! Then he told his grandpa that he likes timeout because it’s peaceful 😂😂.

Most people enjoy art galleries and museums? Give me my street art and I’m satisfied. For the past two years, I’ve committed at least one day on each trip to finding street art in the city I’m visiting. I love graffiti! Wall murals do something to me!! Soooo How did I spend my last day in Bali? I spent it in Canggu on the beach - leaving my footprints in the sand (well, the wall) using graffiti. I stumbled upon a graffiti class, taught by the French graffiti sensei @tyaasabali, while scrolling on Airbnb for last day experiences (I also ended up making authentic coconut oil!!). I still can’t believe I got to do this!! My work is on a beach in Bali for everyone to see!! This was definitely a dope experience!!

It’s almost 8am here (same time zone as China so I’m not suffering from jet lag) and I have two more days to go before I leave this beautiful city....I still can’t believe I’ve been here Sunday and had the opportunity to enjoy two beautiful cities! I think it’s safe to say I love it here (not interested in relocating but I’d definitely come again). I stumbled upon many hidden gems, enjoyed many well-known and tourist-ridden areas, and met another full-figured melanated diva who also lives in China! Sometimes God places people in your life at the weirdest times to inspire and remind you of your ultimate goal. 2.5 more days until I go back home to Suzhou but this was really a great experience! Can’t wait to get home and get back to writing. It’s crazy how I left the States because I wanted to travel and have more time to blog....only to move to China and become so invested in my job that I forgot my initial purpose for coming here! Bali, you were good to me and I’ll definitely see you again!

When the background is so ravishing that it is assumed to be a beautifully painted wall mural.....last night’s dinner at Cafe du Monyet - a vintage cafe and restaurant strategically hidden in the middle of souvenir and tourist shops - was made complete by the beautiful sunset creeping behind the rice fields. Beautiful food / beautiful views. View my story for a peep at the great decor and my yummy food!

Merry Christmas from Amed! Tomorrow, I’ll be traveling to Ubud before heading to my final stop in Kuta and then Denpasar. I currently have 38 mosquito 🦟 bites but it’s been a good trip thus far!

Singing “No Woman No Cry” at 12am after drinking Arak tequila (Bali’s strongest alcohol at 50 proof)....Christmas is off to a good start! I still miss my grandma’s chitterlings but she promised to make me some when I visit next month so I’m good!! Merry Christmas everyone!!
