    Is that a 2 RMB water bottle from China in the 2nd last pic?

    You flew into Cleveland during the Republican Convention?!! Good heavens, you are very, very brave! (Sleeping in the car is nothing compared to that, right?)

    Glad to get an update.

    Great to see photos from your road trip! I bet it’s exhausting at times, but also an adventure. We also hope to go on a small roadtrip with our car near Guangzhou.

    Nice photos!

    As USA citizen, Jocelyn, are you going to vote this election? We have most stinky candidates this year. Neither appeals to me.

    Trump is isolationist and subtle racist who appeals to the lowest part of human insecurity. He is classic slum lord.

    Hillary is closet neocon who promote international adventure and interventionism. She is also a racist, especially against Asian.
    Hillary Clinton, for one, has been heard to say in private settings, “I don’t want my grandchildren to live in a world dominated by the Chinese.”

    This kind of thinking is downright racist in nature, which see the world via racial domination. She resembles Hitler more than Trump in seeing the world as racial struggle.

    Jocelyn and John are fighting against racial injustice. But we have political leaders who would see the world via lens of racial domination.

    Unfortunately we no longer have leader like Obama in this election anymore. In Obama doctrine article, he expressed the deepest contempt toward tribalism (racism is form of tribalism).

    Both Trump and Clinton are tribal (racist) in nature. But Trump is less likely to go to war against other nations due to his isolationist ideology. Clinton would not have hesitation to seek world domination through aggressive foreign policy.

    We are screwed.
