Junk floats on polluted water.

It wasn’t very long ago that my mother unexpectedly invited me to go to China with her. At the time, I was still struggling daily with my generalized anxiety disorder (agoraphobia, yay!) but I said sure because who turns down a free international vacation? Now, five months later, I’m readying myself to leave the country for 16 days. In anticipation of my trip, I thought I’d share a condensed itinerary.

Day 1 depart USA, nonstop flight to Beijing Day 2 Beijing, transfer to hotel Day 3 Beijing, Tian’anmen Square, Forbidden City, Summer Palace Day 4 Beijing, Temple of Heaven, the Great Wall Day 5 Beijing, hutongs via rickshaw, flight to Xian Day 6 Xian, Terra Cotta Warriors, Shaanxi History Museum, Tang Dynasty stage show Day 7 Xian, Wild Goose Pagoda, the City Wall, flight to Yichang Day 8 Yangtze River cruise, Three Gorges Dam, Xiling Gorge Day 9 Yangtze River cruise, Wu Gorge, Lesser Three Gorges or Shennong Stream (depending on water levels) Day 10 Yangtze River cruise, Qutang Gorge, Shibaozhai Temple or Fengdu, “City of Ghosts” (depending on water levels) Day 11 Chongqing, Chongqing Zoo, the Old Town, General Joseph W. Stilwell Museum, flight to Guilin Day 12 Guilin, Li River cruise, Yangshuo, Reed Flute Cave Day 13 Shanghai, Children’s Palace, the Bund, Jade Buddha Temple Day 14 Shanghai, Yu Garden, Pudong, Shanghai Museum, Shanghai Acrobats Day 15 Shanghai, free day Day 16 depart Shanghai, flight to USA
