Our China trip

I went to China with my family for about 3 week. We went to Beijing, Nanjing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Shuzhou, Wuxi and Shaoxing. I liked candied strawberry which is strawberry that is coated with crunchy candy. I also liked looking at Chang Jiang river, seeing the Song dynasty performance and acrobatic performance. I remember going with tour groups, climbing the Great Wall (chang chen), visting the Mao zhu xi memorial, walking through the forbidden city where the emperor used to live and etc. I didn't like getting pushed, the squat toilet and stinky bathrooms. In China, there was a lot of yummy, yummy snacks. My favorite snack was this hand grounded peanut dough.

I think China was fun and I wish we can go again. Next time I will visit different parts of China, get some more toy pandas and some more massages. :)

This year is the year of the tiger.

We're on the Great Wall of China when it was raining. It was very hard to climb because it was very steep. Sometimes I had to hold on to the rails.

This is my little friend on one of the tours.

At the west lake... feels good to be outside.

We are on the tour bus.This is our favorite drink in China.

We're getting a haircut. My brother didn't like his haircut because it was cut too short. Mine is just right.

At my mom's grandfather's old house. He has bamboo in his back yard. We tried to climb the bamboo but it was very hard.

We saw lots of fish and turtles at Buddha temple pond

We're taking a walk in Jing Shang where my grandparents live. We saw an elementary school playing outside. We watched them for quite a while.

I think it looks like they are having lots of workout and fun.

We are at the Shanghai pavilion inside the World Expo. My mom brought us fruit Popsicle and they are good!

Night scene in Shanghai. This picture was taken from a ship.

These are ladies dressed up in different costumes from different parts of China. We saw them at the world exp in the China pavilion. These ladies represents Shanxi province and I like their costumes.

These are ladies representing Beijing. They are dressed in Qing Dynasty costumes which is the last dynasty in China.

She is from Mongolia

Minority Chinese.

We also saw other country's pavilion, like Russia, Peru etc. We didn't see the US pavillion because the line was really long, like over 3 hours . It was also very hot but a lot of Chinese people still wear a lot of clothes.
