IT WAS THE BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!
Yesterday when everyone asked me if I was going on this trip today to 龙慶峽, I was super reluctant. Then someone told me it is really beautiful there (so what?!), you can get on a boat (I don't care about boats), horse-back riding (a maybe, but I won't go out of my way to get on a horse, especially when I am going to Inner Mongolia already), and bungee-jumping (OMG!!! COUNT. ME. IN.!!!!!) Hence, I woke up this morning, yet again waken up by Courtland, and ran to this 龙慶峽.
I suppose it is beautiful, except it has become so commercialized. I must publicly admire Chinese's creativity. Who would build a plastic/cement dragon along a hill? Anyways.
The fall was great, the speed was unbelievable, and the sight was amazing - it felt like you are about to fall into the water. IT was so much fun. It kind of feel like you are flying. Oh, the speed, the acceleration of gravity. SOOOO cool. Really, you are just hanging in the air the entire time.
I don't want to describe the feelings and the excitement in words. Partly it is because it is almost impossible, at least for me, to describe it accurately and completely, and partly because I am getting really tired now.
But it was AMAZING. Now I can check off one thing in my life to-do list. MUAHAHAHA.
SEriously though, next time I will find a higher cliff to jump down. Free falling is fuuuuun. =-D
