Update From China

I feel like it’s been a bit of a whirlwind week & a half since we got here. There are so many new things – sights, sounds, tastes, smells – to take in. I’m desperately trying to absorb it all & not be overwhelmed. The contrast of the old & the new hasn’t ceased to amaze me.

We’re spending most of our time with people here which is awesome. Life here in Wuhan seems to revolve around food & relationships…I kinda like that :) In it all there is so much Hope, so many glimpses of Light, which is exciting & encouraging. So many stories, but for now, here’s a quick photo update.

The trip didn’t start off so smoothly. A long hectic rainy Sunday night in Chicago. A cancelled Monday morning flight. Rescheduled for 9pm. Overbooked. BUT we finally got seats!! After all day in the airport we were off.

Day 1 exploring Beijing.

First Hot Pot experience. I have to say that I’m quite proud of how much spice I can handle. And of my chopstick skills :)

The Forbidden City was stunning. The detail on everything is absolutely incredible.

Climbing the Great Wall. Definitely one for the memory book of life experiences.

Coffee. Sushi. And the orchestra. Random day one in Wuhan.

Just one part of the Wuhan skyline.

Shrimp Hot Pot for lunch.

The strongest cup of coffee I’ve ever had I think.

A beautiful sunset in Wuhan amidst the giant buildings everywhere.

With courage, Katie
