Wow! Lex,

Fabulous tour, terrific photos, and deciding which part of Shanghai I like best???hmmmm... now that is a toss up! They both look to be great places and you would probably see something different every visit.

The university looks like a great place to attend! From all your pictures and travels, China looks like a wonderful place to vacation or live. Did you ever get a sense of what the government was like or if there is any poverty? I never saw anything that would represent what I envision China to be like. Why do so many Chinese want to leave China and live in the US ?

Absolutely loved this post! I did, however, expect to see a "So I did!" after reading you tiring of just window shopping, and some great purchase. Everything in HK and Macau seemed so neat! And made me even more excited for the glitz in Vegas in two weeks! Wish you were joining us, though!

WOW!!!! What an amazing place!!!! It was like riding through the Sahara in a movie!!! My husband once built a yurt in the backyard (Before I knew him), and he thought the yurts in China were pretty cool. You are so lucky to have all these fabulous traveling experiences. Living in the US will never be the same! :)

Am so enjoying your photos and text. So happy for you and so glad your parents supported you in having such a wonderful life experience. You are adorable as ever and no wonder the locals all want to have their photo taken with you:) Maybe in 20 years I will get there too...you have peaked my interest for sure.

Hi 'Lex,

Fantastic pictures and tour of Nanjing. Was wondering what makes the Buddhist Linggu Temple the best in the world? By the way, love, love, love the purple potatoe and your nails look great. Hope the rest of your trip is as much fun as it has been. Thinking of you as always, LY, Aunt Candy

Looks like you found a great place to escape...blew up the picture of the insects, etc for dad and he had to walk away....lol. They were amazing and the sizes of some them were astounding. Can't imagine them to be commonplace...loved the architecture though!

Hi 'Lex...love your pictures and explanations so that I know what is going on with each picture. All of the ladies in the Alumnae Office at Stephens love the skyline picture the best and are amazed at the sites. Glad you are having a good time and can't believe that you have not gotten really lost. Knowing me, I would still be going around in circles. Hope you had a nice b'day and am looking forward to hearing all about your trip when you get back. Love you, Aunt Candy
