Nanjing, Shanghai And Some Places In Between

Went on a 6 day tourism trip with a chinese friend and two of her friends. Not only was it extremely touristy but it was all in chinese. Needless to say I got bored really fast, and waking up at 5 in the morning to sit in some tourist trap is mot my idea of a good time. However I did get rather good at several of the built in games on my cell phone. Be it noted that in Yatzee I got 369 points out of a possible 400 (there are no points for bonus Yatzees in this version) and my high score in snake is 1615. I did go to some classic chinese tourist spots though, Yellow Mountain, Lake of a Thousand Islands, West Lake, Wu Zhen and Shanghai. All in all it want so bad. Traveling with three out of shape city girls got annoying but it got me out of Beijing and made me practice chinese. Shanghai was pretty cool too.

Some of these are looking pretty good - I think your extra time over there really let you get below the surface.

And I found your family's blog about your trip to get your sister, and it's really awesome : D Have a good rest of your time in China.
