The alarm rang at 6 30. I woke up, took a shower, and got ready for my lesson at kung fu. It was the best workout I have ever done in my life. There were squats, punches, kicks, and I had no clue what was happening. In the end, the routine looked awesome and man was I tired. Tomorrow, we have more lessons and I simply can not wait. Then, we went to an ancient astronomy section, and saw how the winter solstice and summer solstices are judged. These things were built over 800 years ago, and its amazing to see that they still work today, and how incredibly intelligent they were. Lunch was next (thank god) and I had the best fish I have ever tasted in my young life. I was telling some jokes, and I learned some new ones too (I cheated by looking them up online through my blackberry, again what would the world do with out technology?). Tonight we have dinner and watching a performance of kung fu. For this blog, I just want to give a shout out to my man cory key, and my man jimbo. Today, we got some good shots boys. Next time, I'm going to do a head flip. Get the shot. Just saying... I did not do a head flip. Theu wouldn't teach me. I was just playing around.

Drew...on your computer showing Grandma P the videos..she couldn't believe she was seeing you in China! Read her your blog and we thought what a great work out! Did you get to do your head flip? Everyday on your trip has been one great learning experience after another(can't learn this stuff in Can't believe your week is coming to an end...I'm sure you wish you could stay another week, but I'm anxious for you to come home and share your stories~ See you soon, Luv Ya Mom

I loved your shout out. I don't know Cory Key but I do know Jimbo. He is an awesome videographer and if anyone can capture your head flip, I'm sure it will be him. You sound like you are having the time of your life. Karen Wells DSA South Africa

I definitely want to see the photo of your head flip (but be CAREFUL). It's wonderful that this trip engages your family across generations in the technology of seeing you in China.
