Thought I should post some pics of my amazing time in China. It was a very busy time – we hit the ground running and had visited four cities in five days…Shanghai, Kunshan, Nanjing and Beijing. I got quite sick in my last week unfortunately but still managed to visit the amazing Summer Palace, the Forbidden City and of course the Great Wall. Even managed to get a few inches of air there. 🙂 They were all amazing but the best thing for me had to be all the amazing, beautiful people I met!!
Managing a small leap for joy on the Great Wall.
The speed trains…so fast!!

Lost in Shanghai?
Some folk in Nanjing
The Nanjing University – beautiful
New friends in Beijing
About to board a boat to explore the Summer Palace. (It actually left without us while we were taking the photo.)
The incredible Long Corridor – 728 metres long, with 14,000 pictures painted on its ceiling. Beautiful!!!
The incredible Great Wall of China!\
Up on one of the watch towers. Seeing the inhospitable, mountainous terrain to the north
you’d wonder what invading army could ever be a threat.
Some of the wonderful people in Shanghai
The massive gates in the Forbidden City. And the ghastly dust mask.
