Where I stayed
Pretty darn mind-blowing: they've got many cities with populations around 10 million that we'd never heard of - & the cities are pretty close to looking like the 'developed' world. The work ethic and drive of the Chinese is.... (lets just say we could use some of it back in the red white & blue).
Our journey includes several very neat stops (See PICS for some cool shots):
Xian: Terra Cotta Warriors & a generally hip & well-educated city with friendly people.
Chonqging: Visit the PANDAS (very cool)
Yangtze River Cruise through the 3 Gorges Dam
Shanghai - China's version of NYC (except bigger & more polluted but with incredible energy & exploding wealth)
