The Best Trip to China

This summer, I traveled to China for a month and learned to love China as much as I could.
Our Father was already well acquainted with China with work and friendship, and throughout his many years of seeing and loving China, we took our first family trip to China.
I already had many relations with China and some wonderful Chinese friends before going to there. I had begun to learn Chinese with a teacher and my sister and was flourishing.
The cities and activities I traveled with were:
1. Beijing: I attended a camp of Chinese culture, where I could learn the truth behind the Chinese civilizations and visit the sites, while becoming incredibly attached to my Chinese family and practicing Chinese.
2. Luoyang: Here we were greeted by very important people from the government of Henan province, and we visited the astounding Longmen Grottoes. We also celebrated our welcoming in a restaurant in the honor of incredible Wu Zetian. We reached Luoyang with our first fast train.
3. Xi'an: An amazing city where we were greeted by our favorite older sister and uncle. We visited many amazing places such as the legendary Terracotta warriors, traditional villages, the Wild Goose Pagoda, and had many traditional dinners, being greeted with many new members of our Chinese family.
4. Chengdu: Maybe the favorite stop of our whole wondrous trip to China. Here, we got the unbelievable honor of adopting a panda. This action was already banned a few months before, but due to our status in China, we got the incredible honor of completing the adoption of a panda. This was due to our godmother, uncle, and family. We had chosen an amazing panda, to be named Qi Xi. She is currently a little over one years old and flourishing everyday. We get regular updates on her growth and I will post them in further posts. We were even allowed to touch the unimaginably beautiful fur of our new panda.
It was such a legendary honor to adopt a panda, and I am eternally grateful for this.
5. Guilin (and Yangshuo): This was probably the most beautiful landscape of our whole journey, and the most breathtaking view that we would see in our whole life. Here we had the chance to see and admire the rice terraces, the little mountain villages, the dragon teeth mountains, and the rushing river of Guilin. We spent a night at the Yangshuo resort which we reached by boat, and had the chance to gulp up beauty from nature.
6: Inner Mongolia (Hohhot): Our last stop was the unique Inner Mongolia. Here we were greeted by very close and important friends and family. We were taken to see the legendary grasslands of Inner Mongolia, the fields, the famous ancient Inner Mongolian dances, karaoke, ponies, and more. We had such a wonderful time and had the chance of riding the unique Mongolian ponies.
This was our first and definitely not last trip to China, where we had the chance to meet our family and discover the true spirit and magic of China.
