Degen Hill is a travel junkie who spends his free time weight training, haggling with street vendors, and teaching English abroad when he's not busy defending his crocheting skills. He is a 24 year old graduate of Eastern Washington University where he studied Spanish, Communications and quickly realized that life's too short to not travel. Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?
"Experimentar el mundo a través de información interminable de segunda mano no es suficiente. Si queremos autenticidad, hay que iniciarla. Nunca sabremos nuestro verdadero potencial a menos que nos esforcemos a encontrarlo. Es esta auto-descubrimiento que inevitablemente nos lleva a los lugares más salvajes de la tierra " Travis Rice
Went to Chaoyang Park yesterday and it did not disappoint. Rode some roller coasters, visited the fake beach, and played some carnie games, of which I lost. Then went to Tongzhou and had some beers. Always nice to see new parts of Beijing
Upon landing in Beijing, a German girl turned to me and said, ‘So cloudy today!’ To which I explained that this was ‘smog’ and was full of pollutants. She didn’t look so eager to be out and about in Beijing as she had before learning what smog was.
