During our long flight over the Pacific, we have a chance to familiarize ourselves with a little of the history of China and compare our travels with those of Marco Polo. We, of course, visit the Great Wall and the Forbidden City and as we wander about Beijing, we marvel at the mountains of cabbages stored in natures refrigerator. We travel by train to the countryside, meet new friends, visit schools, and learn about the art of paper cutting. Everyone has a story to tell and Dr. Li tells us a very sad story about growing up during the Cultural Revolution.
