This Spring I was in Yangshuo, which is in southwestern China. I was a volunteer teacher at The Oral English College. My goal for this trip was to be in a beautiful area of China and stay long enough to get to know Chinese people.
I scored on both counts. The area around Yangshuo is in fact one of the most uniquely beautiful places in China. In just a few minutes from my room I could be walking among the karst mountains. But getting to know the students of the school was even more wonderful. I've posted a video pix show of these experiences on YouTube.
