February 4–16, 2003

Jerry invited me to join him on a trip to see the sights in Hangzhou, China for a week. Since I would already be in China, I decided to make a side trip on my own to Beijing to see the Great Wall as well (even though it was nowhere near Hangzhou or Shanghai, my port of entry). As an added bonus, I spent a good chunk of one day walking around the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. I also spent a day touring Shanghai.

I was quite proud of the fact that I successfully spent a week in China by myself.

For both a summary and a (very) detailed account of the trip, see my travelogue.
