One week to go!

We will be leaving for our two-month trip to China on July 6th. We'll post updates, photos, and other tidbits here for our family and friends.

The plan is this. We will be in Beijing for six weeks to attend Chinese classes at a private language program. We chose this private program because of its flexible class dates and available different levels. Starla's parents will join us and my mom in early August and tour Beijing while we finish our classes. After the class completes on August 18th, we will be travelling to the city of Xi'an and then to Sichuan (Szechwan) province. All of us will return to the U.S. on September 4th, Labor Day.

Here's a satellite map of Beijing from Google maps.
