Memories of China - Day 1





I visited China in September 2004, Almost 4 years to the day before the Olympics. All of the Olympic coverage has brought back a ton of memories. China was such a different place to visit - it was becoming modern at such a rapid pace, and you could see construction in almost every form as we traveled throughout the country. I remember how quickly foreign things became familiar too - when we first received green tea - with it's loose leaves floating in a clear, tall glass, it seemed very odd, but by the end of the trip was normal.

What stunning pictures. We have friends who've married Chinese spouses and it seems such a fascinating culture to really get to know.
