Cheers from China!
Today is our last full day in Wuxi, China. We’ve been having a fantastic time. Last week we landed in Beijing and toured the Forbidden City and Great Wall and stayed at a wonderful hotel where we were spoiled. The Great Wall was so worth the long flight to China. It’s a must do if you can do it! Then we took off to spend some time with Jordan and Wilber in S. Korea, then took off for Shanghai and Wuxi. I don’t have much time to write because we’re off on another adventure in a few minutes.
Yesterday we went to a Buddha “amusement” park, The Grand Buddha at Ling Shan, which was such a nice surprise. The Buddha in itself is worth the trip, but there are garden trails and pagodas and other goodies throughout the park. And, of course, we’ve been feasting and sipping all sorts of goodies.
Including bubbly at the top of the Hyatt in Shanghai!
Okay, I’m rushed, so here’s your photo blast of some of the cool stuff we’ve gotten to see. I’ll write more and post later —- including a Seoul post.
Beijing shots ….
More Beijing — lol can you find Joe in the crowd? And loved the pool at our hotel. Below are Shanghai and Wuxi pics — including riding the subway. LOL the hanging handrails kept bopping us in the face. We also got to ride a bullet train, so that was fun. You haven’t lived until you’ve experienced the madness of public transport when you can’t read, write or speak the language — or use google translate.
Oh, how I wish I could tell you more, but my crew is ready to get out and about. So, next time I pop in I’ll give you more story.
