China



Here are a few videos (and pictures) from my trip to China . . .

This one is of me and mom floating down the Yulong river in Yangshuo, China on a bamboo raft.


They had stations set up in the middle of the river to take pictures of the tourists which they printed and laminated for you right there. I couldn't resist buying this one . . . Mom's expression is priceless! She insists she wasn't worried at all :o)


Don't you feel bad for the poor guy who had to push us down the river?! Talk about hard work.

This one is a video of an amazing performance we saw in Yangshuo. It was directed by the same person who did the opening ceremonies for the Beijing olympics. The performance was all on a lake surrounded on three sides by the stunning karst mountains.

This is a picture of what it looked like when they lit up the mountains during the show.




Where do you think I should go on my next big trip?


P.S. You can see more pictures of the trip here.
