Random Pictures


A resteraunt we went to in Beijing. That's Megan. :-P


A rock with hair. This was in a Stone Museum on the way up to the Great Wall. I'm not kidding...this rock really has hair!



Me sweeping the Great Wall. Don't they have cool brooms?



Side fish! Unfortunately they were on display to be eaten...but they were cool anyway.



Robert (our tour guide and good friend), Rick, Megan, and I on the Great Wall.



Tiananmen Square


Megan and I enjoying Tiananmen Square. :-)















Temple of Heavens












It had just snowed the day we went to the Temple of Heavens so it was different to see everything covered in snow. Oh yeah...and it was VERY slippery!



My Apartment


This is my apartment in Dalian. I live just down the road from all the market places and about five minutes away from the school. I got an apartment all to myself too, which is good because it's about the right size for just one person. :-)

Chicago Airport


The Chicago airport had a little bit cooler things to look at than Springfield. I didn't take near as many pictures though because I was carrying way too many heavy things and was worried about eating. :-P We flew to Chicago on a TINY plane and we flew to Beijing on a HUGE plane. :-)

The Springfield Airport

















I was occompanied by my mom, dad, and Trent. There were also "interesting" things to see in Springfield...like random racoons and Andy Williams.
