While walking through the Emperor's Summer Palace, I noticed the impressive amount of craftsmanship that was put into the pavilions, bridges, and buildings. Each structure was carefully made and adorned with intricate hand drawn designs. The amount of time and effort that went into making each of these buildings is extraordinary and I think it says a lot about Chinese work ethic and their dedication. With each day that passes, I am continually taken aback by the remarkable structures that are created here in China. I love how every building is functional and beautiful at the same time.
The time we spent singing with the Chinese people at the Summer Palace was my favorite part of the trip thus far. While standing on the stage, I felt as if I was a part of the Chinese culture. I was really moved by the experience and it almost brought tears to my eyes!
