My first trip to China was in 1984 on a day tour to Zhuhai and Guangzhou after crossing to Macao from Hong Kong by hydrofoil. In 1987 I participated in the 4th International Kite Festival at Weifang in Shandong Province after visiting Beijing and the Great Wall. There were other trips to Taiwan too but I did not visit China again until a trip to Shanghai and Suzhou in 2007. What a change in the country during that 20 years! In 2010 I was selected to work in China for six weeks as a Wacom Global Exchanger. It was a great experience living in Beijing, visiting Shanghai for the World Expo, attending a digital educators conference in Zhengzhou, and visiting Wacom supplier factories in Kunshan and Suzhou. Cheryl also joined me at the end and we became tourists visiting the Great Wall and Guilin.
