Travels

I just got back from a tour of Guizhou, a province in Southern China. It was a 4 day trip designed around seeing a minority people called the Miao, as well as observing a festival they hold each year called the Sisters Festival. It was a great trip and I hope to go back with Phil later this year. I managed to get some good pictures and will post them in the next few days if I can.

I am now preparing for a 9 day journey along the Silk Road in Western China. I leave on Sunday, so my time is short. This will be a bit more challenging than Guizhou, but I look forward to it. I will definitely write and post on both trips when I am back from the Silk Road travels.

Sorry for the short post, but I did want to give a quick update.

I am so glad to hear you are traveling and seeing the country - I know you mentioned that you wanted to really take advantage of those opportunities. I can't wait to start seeing the images you post. I think of you often and I wish I could talk to you about some of the NPR stories I have been hearing lately - great stuff that I am sure we would enjoy some fun debating on.
