Less than two weeks to go (part 1 of 3)

Benny and Bobby's Visit to China
With less than two weeks to go, my time is running short. I am starting to scramble to take care of all my last minute shopping and sightseeing. Since my last post I have done a lot. This will be the first of a three part series of posts.

First, Shaun had some friends, Benny and Bobby, come in town and so I headed to Shanghai to spend a couple of days with them. We went out to dinner, then a club on Saturday night. We ended the evening with breakfast full of French toast and a Denver omelet at the City Diner. The next day we took it easy in the hot sun, but jumping on a three hour cruise along the Huang Pu River. This cruise took us all the way to the mouth of the Yangtze, which looked as if I had reached the ocean it was so big.

A few days later Benny & Bobby came to Wuxi, so that we could catch a train to Beijing together. But first we had dinner and a quick foot massage before boarding our train. We slept very well for the ten hour journey and woke up shortly before we had to get off. The next few days were spent seeing the sights in Beijing and hanging out with a few classmates. My favorite was the Great Wall! It was an awesome sight and quite humbling when you started climbing up and down the wall to each tower. My legs had that good sore feeling the next day, that you get from sense of accomplishment. Don't forget to check out the picture album by clicking on the picture above!
