Everything is Cooler in China [Video]

I feel like I should have a shirt that says, “It’s been three months and all I have to show for it is a 6-minute video.”

It’s been three months since our little band of MOJO-ers high-tailed it to northwesten China. Three months – good golly, Ms. Molly! I can’t say it feels like yesterday, last week, or even last month that we traversed the Chinese landscape and bathed in the generosity of our hosts. It feels entirely like three months. I can say, however, that still feels real, which is more than I can say for my trips to Disney (at age 6 and 17, respectively). And that, ladies and gentlemen, says quite a lot, as I’ve been staring at the trip footage for, well, three months now.

Oh, yes: the footage. While waltzing along the Yellow River one day, it was brought to my attention by Dr. Rob Williams that even the most mundane activities were instantly cooler as a result of the little phrase “…in China.” I lounged on a rock/seat/crevice and said, “I’m sitting on a rock…in China” and it was true! Sitting never looked so cool! Hence, the following retrospective, entitled “Everything is Cooler in China”. All edited and ready for your enjoyment.

China. The land of the cool.

    Having made many visits to China I would have to agree….”Everything is Cooler in China”……I am constantly intrigued. It is never ceases to amaze me how closely connected we all are the world over and yet there are common threads across cultures that are quite unique when experienced in a culture other than our own. I loved sharing in your experience. Chic (New Zealand)

    Hey Mojo Travelers,

    This video was awesome. The editing was pretty sweet and I love how you guys were able to go from place to place and really get a few snippets of your journey and the fun things you did.

    Can’t wait to see more . . . . in China!
