China

Ni-hao! Have you all been wondering where I’ve been? I’ve been traveling around China and did a quick weekend stint in Austin. I also started a new job, which means I’ve been busy training and traveling. Dan and I joined his parents on the UC Davis Alumni Group tour around China for 2.5 weeks in September. We started our adventure in Beijing, went to Lhasa (Tibet), Chengdu, Xi’an, Guilin and ended in Shanghai. China is an amazing country with so much history and culture. Over the next few weeks I’ll post about our adventures, but for the meanwhile, here are a few photos from our trip:
