Yangshuo, China

I find myself with the Internet and the opportunity, so why not share a few photos from my travels?  My roommate and I started in Yangshuo, a town in southern China known for the unique karst scenery.

It was a little cold and gray, but still worth the visit.  Travel in China is always an adventure!


Produce market

Check out that chicken

There were lots of weavers and handicrafts on the touristy West Street

Farmland scenery on one of our long bike rides

Cute kiddo on the way out of town

We took a float on a bamboo raft.:

  1. I just found your blog! Bamboo rafting- so fun!

    1. Thanks Amy -- love your new blog! I'll be in Laos with Sara, Gloria, Stephanie, & Amy after conference. Hope to see you there.

  2. I love the photo of the farmland with the karsts in the background! Super pretty.

    1. Thanks! A lot of our photos were all gray and not that impressive, so I tried to include ones that had a little green.
