Exploring Beijing - China

by Elena

A few weeks ago I briefly traveled to Beijing, China. I was only there for two days and spent one of those days at the Great Wall and the other day within the city, viewing just a few of the many historical structures they have. I was able to see Tiananmen square, a 109-acre large square! And then I visited the Forbidden City, an enormous palace for the emperor.

Guilin - China

by Elena

My family came to visit me this month. I am so lucky that I was able to show them not only Shanghai, but we also traveled outside of the city! This post is all about Guilin. A gorgeous rural city that has lakes strewn throughout the area and beautiful mountains that were cut from the ocean long ago that now jut up, out of the ground like the teeth of some monstrous beast.

Good Experiences, Learning Experiences, Duck Clavicles: The Shanghai Experience

by Jack

As a kid, I played a lot of Madden ‘07. I dominated everybody, from my little sister to my dad (OK, no bragging rights there) because I knew the rules. I knew that I could time my blitz a second early and not be called for a penalty. I knew that if I hit the quarterback (Eli Manning) a certain way, I could completely annihilate him without being flagged. I knew all the “easter eggs,” one might say. Eventually, though, the powers that be at EA Sports released Madden ’08.

Nature In and Around The City of Shanghai

by Elena

Hey all! So, I've been traveling around a bit, as you may know if you follow my blog, and have come across some beautiful scenery here in China. Most of my other posts are more informational, but I want this one to purely be for showing everyone what a gorgeous country China. Most of these pictures were taken either in Shanghai (or the surrounding area), or Chengdu (and the surrounding area).

Shanghai - More Temples Than You Can Count

by Elena

I have been in China for about two months now. It has been an amazing experience and I have been able to travel around a bit, with more travels to come, but a trend I have noticed at every new place I go to is that there are always beautiful temples in every city, and within these temples are gorgeous statues and figurines for worship. Here are just a few of the stunnnig temples and artifacts I have seen.
