Weekend with A & BJune 17, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C
Very busy weekend, included creative projects and movies.
I was up fairly early (7 am), considering the time I got to bed and the long travels. Off for a Chinese breakfast in the hotel (see the photo); 38 yuan (about $6）It was an experience. :)
After breakfast, I was heading out to explore and I ran into one of my tour mates, Karen, an oncology nurse from Denmark. She speaks perfect English, much to me delight! We set out together to explore. Karen arrived the day before and had been out, so she lead the way.
We went through the nearby Hutong. These are traditional communities that are disappearing as Beijing becomes a moden city. It was quite a sensual experience with all the sights, smells, and sounds. I chose not to taste anything!!Read more
My first trip to China is a 21-day tour with GAdventures. Am I crazy to take a 3-week trip when I am changing jobs and moving from San Antonio, TX to Salt Lake City, UT?!!
My bag is almost packed (4/23/12), but I still have tons to do to be ready to go! I'm really excited to experience this amazing country.Read more
