Although I always wanted to go to China, I didn’t know much about the country except that it
had the Great Wall, a Forbidden City, some
Terracotta Soldiers, and the ancestors of Charlie Chan. What I found on this
trip was a rich history, engaging people, and a much wider variety of foods
than I had imagined. Dave and I started our trek in the capital of China,
Beijing. With its population of 21.5 million, China’s second largest city has
thousands of years of history.
