I wish I could be out there and continue the journey, but COVID-19 put an abrupt stop on all our travel dreams.
If we can't look forward, we can still look back. And while the future is obscured, the past was bright and filled with unforgettable people, places and moments. Over the next few months, I'll share a few photos, anecdotes, and thoughts from each place in China that I visited over the last 10 years.
My reflections on 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2015 are complete. My next trip in 2016 led me to new places, was filled with exciting new experiences, and most of all was once again the start of terrific new friendships.
Let's revisit Zhengzhou and Kaifeng in Henan province this week and stroll through a sea of flowers, splendid chrysanthemum sculptures and historical scenes. Next, I'll go through my notes and pictures from Yantou and Shanghai in Zhejiang province.
