Training Across China
(this was our trip to Xin Zhou, our new camp location)
The train station in Beijing

A few of our strong fellow who helped haul all our 25 pieces of luggage through the train station, then on and off again!

Jason toting his things to the train

Adam and Sam going down some of the many steps we had to take in the station

Our pile of STUFF

This is how Jason and Sam felt after getting everything loaded on the train

Christy and I trying to get comfy for our 7 hour ride

Biking Adventure

Last night we rented bikes for about 18 cents a piece and went on a biking adventure.  It was quite the path we took... along train tracks, over a bridge, through the city streets, and back home!

Climbing a dirt hill to get along the train track path

Too fun! Looks like you are makin' lots of memories.
Considering the fact that you are Homesick, you are probably not gonna want to leave when you are done. Which leads to..you are probably going to get home & be so glad to be home & at the same time you are going to miss china camp;-) I love you to China to Iowa to... any-where else. Oh & back to my heart=)
