From Shanghai to Beijing - September 2010 China Trip

This was another wonderful trip through China. Even though we had a lot of people traveling with us, it was not a problem and the organization was terrific. What follows are some of my parting photos and some from Linda Hanley who traveled with us. You do need to go find her photos as she did a marvelous job.
Ann Xin, from the CPAFFC, has been helping USCPFA tours to China for several years. She came to the US for one of our conventions recently. Below, one of the friends I took home. Below right, Tom Loy (Australia) and Bill Willmott (New Zealand). Table
