After our week of performing at the Concordia International School in Shanghai, China, Kenny and I decided to explore Beijing. It was amazing. We had a private tour guide and driver, which I am now convinced is the only way to see a city (unless you know a local). I like to read every single sign and plaque and placard I come across, and with a private guide I was able to dawdle to my heart’s content. We had a chance to see the Great Wall, The Summer Palace, The Temple of Heaven, and The Forbidden City, and so much more. I was in Storyologist heaven. Thanks to Rebecca at Concordia for organizing the entire trip!
