The Wanxiang hotel pampers our study group with three meals a day. Buffet, all you can eat. Some days I feel as though I am pig getting prepped for slaughter. The food is delicious and stuffing. Some might say we are eating better than past royalty. Three different meats, numerous fruits and vegetables, and a vast amount of desserts. I can feel my waistband getting tighter. I have yet to find China’s version of Pepto-Bismol.

The field trips we take are definitely my favorite part of the Wanxiang program. Today we are visiting two museums around Hangzhou’s West Lake, yesterday we visited a natural gas power plant. I am most excited to visit the hydroelectric dam next Monday. I am sure I will have much to write about after visiting the Jiande Hydroelectric plant. Stay posted for more stories to come!

Happy Fourth of July to those back home. And remember, be safe and knowledgeable about lighting off fireworks. Not just for your safety, but also for our animal friends that inhabit the skies! Did I mention I also miss birds? I miss my thrushes, tanagers, and waxwings!
