Chinese People Love Foreign Friends

Like when I along with my international classmates from Wuhan University took a weekend trip to Yichang we spent the day exploring the city and going full-tourist mode at the famous sight of the Three Gorges (you can take a train from Wuchang or Hankou Railway Station to Yichang East which is around a two hour train ride that will cost you from 150-300RMB depending on the time you choose to travel and the seat type – regular seat, or hard/soft sleeper). After a tiresome day out we decided to unwind and sing our foreign little hearts out at KTV – a karaoke bar that can be found in any corner of China. Our international horde – one German boy, two Dutch boys, one Finnish boy, three French girls, and me, a resident of the UK with Russian roots – intended to take the lift up to the third floor where the KTV is, but the lift shook suddenly and some dust from the ceiling fluttered down onto me and I screamed. We experienced a mini-earthquake in the lift and got stuck between the second and third floors – I wasn’t sure we would make it out.
