This summer I had the chance to visit China. My brother and his wife are living in China and teaching English. I spent a little over two weeks in Shanghai, Suzhou and Yancheng. During that time I wrote some detailed updates for family and a few close friends on the impressions of a good Midwestern kid visiting the Middle Kingdom. I dumped them all into one document, did a little editing and now they’re posted. You can download it here.
Below you can see my futile attempts to eat using chopsticks and me posing as a tourist on Nanjing Road in Shanghai. The only thing I can say about chopsticks is that I didn’t starve.
