china bound

I just received notice that I have received a grant for a trip to China in late July and early August. I'll be able to take take three students with me to visit Shanghai, Fuzhou, Chengdu, Shenzhen, and maybe Dalian. Two women are Chinese nationals. One is from Shanghai. The other is from Fuzhou in Fujian Province but has lived in NYC since she was twelve. One guy is from Nepal but spent last semester in SLU's China program and has traveled throughout the country. (Maybe they are taking me to China?) No one has been to more than three of the five cities but each city has been visited by at least one of us. Don't envy us too much: it will be very hot and muggy that time of year.
