China...6 months late

What an amazing trip! We went from Bejing to Xian to Guilin and finally to Shanghai (with lots of small towns in between). I could write a novel about our trip, but I won't because it would never get posted. So here are some of our favorites... The Great Wall, the beautiful gardens, the majestic scenery, the Terracotta Soldiers, the delicious food (however we didn't not want anything to do with Chinese food for several months after we got back), the unique culture, and last but not least the people. We met some wonderful friends on the trip, who really made our trip memorable. We had many wonderful adventures that we will never forget.

The Great Wall


Beautiful China




The Dragon Spine Terraces (my favorite)


Terracotta Soldiers

Ancient China





Dumplings Anyone?

These dumplings were shaped like what was inside. This one was duck. Super cute.




We love China

We saw an acrobatic show in Shanghai. Amazing!

Wow what an awesome looking trip! I would love to go to China. I almost did but then I met Simon and he decided I needed to stay in NYC with him. I'm jealous!
