So I guess yall might want to see some of what happend for us this summer. China was cool, we got a spend a little over 2 weeks there are traveled most of the country. Lets just say alot of travel... We started in Shanghai and showed all the students around.
I had fun eating wierd street vendor food and going to rediculously crazy shopping malls. Then we took a bus to where Becky used to teach. I think it was called Jiangying but i cant spell anything, it was alot of fun there, we got to meet all of Becky's friends and eat from some good restruraunts, along with some bad ones. I guess everyone needs to eat some Duck tongue, deep fried sardines, and all sorts of nastiness.
The we headed to Yangshuo, this place is awesome. It is like the national park of China and it is pretty sweet. The Karst mountains and rivers are amazing. The water was like perfect temperature and really clean, I could have swam for days. Too bad I got a real nasty cold and it slowed us down.
O and i forgot to mention to get here we rode a train for 26 hours but it was actually really cool.
Then we spent two days in Hong Kong, its an amazing city. Got to go to the temple and see some sites. Its cool cause there everything is in english and its a good thing because they speak cantonese so we would have been totally lost.
It was pretty awesome, pretty stressful, but we are totally lucky to be able to spend the summer in china!
