Eric, Have a wonderful trip. I've been following your blog and I'm glad to see that you're going to a place where the photo-ops are boundless, can't wait to see what you'll find. But photography aside, teaching English will be such a rewarding experience and I hope you embrace it. Safe travels ahead and may serendipity find you behind your lens,

Dustin.

Hi, wonderful photos :)I have a daughter studying Chinese in Bejing, she is there for a year, and I am going out to see her in April. My trusty camera will be going too, but I am very much an amateur photographer, so your array of photographic gear to me is amazing. Wishing you a wonderful time out there :)
