China is a vast, confusing, and often contradictary place. Full of beautiful sights, tasty food, and interesting things. With a difficult and sometimes impenetrable language China is not an easy place for any foreigner to simply take a visit to. Rather, experience with China is something that can take months and years to fully cultivate. With an ancient culture there is much of China that remains locked in tradition, however the rapid pace of its modernization is astounding. Truly a place to go to understand more of one's self.
