Whew, what can I say?! I had a blast in China. I am going to break up the trip a little bit and have a couple posts talking about my trip. I haven't uploaded my pictures either so bare with me.
We visited Beijing and Xi'an for 2 weeks and these are some places we visited:

The Great Wall:

We were at the steepest part of the Great Wall. We had to take a chair lift to the top and then hiked around. It was so hot and then we just kept climbing and climbing. What a great workout, no wonder why all the Chinese are skinny haha. Obviously we didnt go all the way, but did what we could and then headed back down to the markets.

People thought we were celebrities. I have brown hair and my little cousin has blonde hair/blye eyes. Everyone wanted to take pictures of us and it was actually pretty funny.
I picked up a good amount of Chinese while I was there, I am afraid I will lose it in no time though now that I am back in the states.

More to come once I get the pictures up!!

What is new with everyoen?!
