Daniel's China Adventure

First day in China

Monday, August 3, 2009

Today I had the time of my life learning tai chi,exploring the forbidden city,and playing ping pong with future chinese olympians. I started the day off trying to push over a tai chi master. No matter how hard I pushed he would absorb my blows like it was nothing. It was fascinating to see an expert control his inner chi. The most memorable event of the day was being mentored by the olympic ping pong coach. I learned so much and it was such an amazing experience that I will never forget. I'm really looking forward to tomorrow.

Would be interesting to know in more detail what you learned about what you said would be the high point of your trip. Almost disappointed about the lack of details. Just for your own benefit, you might want to blog about them at some future date, because, over time, you just might forget. Blogging freeze frames you memories, things learned.
