I am traveling to China to meet my new baby sister Elizabeth YunDan. She was born on January 21, 2008. I'm going on November 19th and getting back on December 5th. I'm traveling with my family. I'm going to visit the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and 2008 Olympics.
Today, we went to the Sea of China and spent time on the beach.
One thing we did on the beach was go on a horse ride. It cost 10 Yuan per person (about $1.50 US Dollars).
After the beach we went back to the White Swan Hotel. We stopped for lunch and visited a store that had all sorts of knives, blades, nunchucks and big butcher knives. My dad bought me an 8 piece torture tool.
China has a lot of agriculture and the farmers work really hard to grow their crops and sell them for money for their family.
They use a lot of bamboo in construction projects because it is better for the environment and it can be re-used. They use bamboo from 6 to 12 stories high.
