Comments

Dear Sara and Choury,

I'm writing to appreciate all your considerate arrangement and great help for my trip. All the things about China when it was in imperial ages attract me as they're so Oriental and incredible. However, with your accomplished guides (esp those guys in Beijing, Xian and Pingyao) I feel your culture all the more mysterious cause what I heard from the guides are just a tiny part of your huge system.

One more thing, I enjoyed the snacks in City God Temple Shanghai and Pingyao. They looked creative and tasted fab. My daughters liked them too and bought lots of take-aways to the hotel. All these are quite eye-openning. We love your great country. Thanks again.
