I love China. I was here in 2013 accompanying my husband on his first trip to see his father’s homeland. We traveled in the south, avoiding large cities and focusing on his extended family. This time around I am coming with a group of colleagues from Union College in Schenectady New York, where I teach filmmaking. We will spend two weeks in Beijing on a study tour. Then I and another colleague will travel to Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Xi’an, Chengdu and Chongqing. We will be joined by a former Chinese student of mine named Zen. I hope you enjoy our travels!
