More details on Lanzhou section

Ruth has planned a number of interesting events while I am with her in Lanzhou. I will get to visit her English classes at the university. We will also be going on visits to Dave's home and Daniel's home. This will provide a view of real life that would not be seen on a typical tourist's itinerary. I will also attend church with her and help with a Bible Study. We will also visit Barry's home in conjunction with seeing the terra cotta warriors in Xian.

I know that I will be taking planes, trains, and buses on my travels within China. I also will be making good use of my feet. I probably will come home in better shape. For starters, Ruth's apartment is on the 8th floor and there are no elevators.

Around the World in 5 1/2 weeks

Beth is leaving Rochester on June 20 for Beijing, China where she'll be met by her sister, Ruth. The two of them will spend a couple of days in Beijing before returning to Lanzhou where Ruth is wrapping up a two year teaching position. After seeing the sights around Lanzhou (and getting Ruth packed for her move back to the US) they will head for Mongolia and then the trans-Siberian Railway, Moscow, St Petersburg and Warsaw. On July 29 Beth will return to US after traveling around the world in 5 1/2 weeks. To see more detail, click on the itinerary at the right.
