I spent the summer of 2005 in the Jiangsu, Shanghai and Beijing, China. I traveled by way of a Sister Cities International program and spent the summer in a home stay environment while I traveled with my Chinese family throughout China. As of Aug. 2008 I've been living and studying in Chengdu at Sichuan University through a University of Washington bilateral exchange program. While I'm here I've got big travel plans for both China and SE Asia!!!
