I’m Back! China Overview

We got back from China yesterday. It was lovely to come back to Japan. I’m starting to think of it as my home, and will miss it when I leave! Also, the toilets here have toilet paper in them!

Here’s a brief overview of what we did in China.


Toured Beijing: Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven, Olympic Stadium, Tianemen Square and many others

This is as close as we could get to the bird's nest.

Visited Datong to see the Hanging Monasteries and the Yungang Caves

The Hanging Monasteries in Datong. Those pillars don't actually support any weight.

Slept on the Great Wall of China!


and of course, ate a lot of delicious food.

Mmm.... Food.


I’ll write about it more soon, but in general it was a really good time and I can’t wait to go back someday.
