Taking the Subway

Going from place to place during Chinese rush hour can be very slow and hectic so we decided to take the subway. 6 people = 3 USD

While visiting some friends of friends, I came across this weird energy drink. At first I thought this might be gatorade knockoff, but then I was told that Lucozade was sold around the world.


Arrived in Guangzhou!

Leaving for Guangzhou in one day!

If all goes according to plan, I should be leaving for china in one day. From Guangzhou I will be updating this website with pictures and interesting finds. Stay posted!



My name is Ruben Teno and I am 16 years old. In just a few days, I will be traveling to Guangzhou for 3 weeks. I will be doing tourist activities as well as working as a camera assistant. I will be posting pictures of the trip and things that I see to this blog.


I-40W. 1217 Miles.

While driving down the I-40W highway, we passed through Texas, Arizona, and entered California. This stretch of road was very long and dull, but the scenery was amazingly beautiful.

Hello everyone! Sorry for no posts recently, I’ve been on a roadtrip.

On august 28th, my mother and I set out from Amherst, MA to Long Beach, CA. Before leaving, we had packed all of our stuff into boxes and had cleared out the apartment. The moving van came early the 28th, and once we had finished loading boxes, we ate some food, then hit the road. We drove 12 hours a day for 4 days straight. I took pictures at almost every rest area just so that I could upload them here.

I will be uploading a few pictures every day. Our first stop was in the New England area. I can’t exactly remember where this was, but it was within 300 miles of MA.

Just as a quick comparison, these two pictures are in the NE area

This picture is in the middle of Arizona. The change in scenery was one of the most amazing things for me
