China so far has lived up to everything I thought to expect and even more. After getting through the jet lag and waking up way too early, the first day has been really exciting and adventurous. The Forbidden City was WAY bigger than I ever thought it would be and I have really come to respect all the time and effort the Chinese seem to put into every type of building and landscape to make everything so unique. I've also found out that vendors don't mess around when it come to trying to sell you something. I was followed a good 5 minutes by one guy trying to sell me a "Rolex". Glad to say I stayed strong and didn't give in. Eating in someones home was a highlight as well and was extremely tasty. Today should be another good day as were going to the Great Wall which I'm very excited for. Yeahh China!
