Wow. Two weeks in China was amazing. What an interesting and conflicted culture. I look forward to re-reading my journal in a few days, especially as I go through my pictures. I took in all the sights of Beijing (The Summer Palace, Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square & The Great Wall) and I also traveled to Xi’an to see the Terra-Cotta Soldiers. Many days were spent at the Pearl Market and Silk Street bargaining myself to death. I was fortunate to meet several locals that showed me different types of the city: 5-star and no-star.
As I enter Thanksgiving week back home in America, I am thankful for the entire experience and the way in which my world is a bit smaller and more personal.
Here are just a few shots…more to come.
