Exploring China

I have never been very good at sitting in one place for very long. 


To keep myself busy in the summer of 2010 I decided to spend six weeks abroad in China. I enrolled in Ocean University in Qingdao via the University of Minnesota and was determined to learn Mandarin. The highlight of my time may have been climbing Mount Hua, or touring the World Expo in Shanghai but the most valuable take-away was a deeper understanding of China and of Chinese culture.
