We just got back into town last night! Upon returning from China we went to visit my family back in Indiana.
We had the most wonderful time on our tour!!!!! It was such a pleasure to meet you. We are looking forward to returning to China next year. We would like to return to Guilin and spend more time there. Guilin is the most beautiful place we've ever seen!! It's like being in heaven. We would also like to visit Suzhou, Hangzhou, Huang Shan, Jiuzhaigou and visit the birthplace of Confucius. We would also like to visit Zhang Fei Temple. If it's possible to visit the temple on the Yangtze Cruise going upstream we would like to be back on the Princess Elaine. We made a lot of friends with the crew of the Princess Elaine and would love to see them all again.
At some point we would also like to return to Xi'an and Beijing. (Please say hello to Tony and Mr. Wang from us and extend our thanks to them again) I think Beijing in 2009 would be best because all of the renovations will be completed and the chaos of the 2008 Olympics will be over. When in Xi'an again we would like to go to the tomb of Empress Wu. But these are a lot of places and I think that maybe they should be seperated so we can spend plenty of time in each one.
We won't know when our time off is going to be until we go back to work in July. We'll let you know as soon as possible.
China is such a beautiful country and it is so large!! We welcome your advice on how to see all of it in a logical way.
We can't thank you enough for putting together such an amazing experience! We look forward to many visits in the coming years,
George and Stephanie E.

Sorry it has taken so long to get back. We have been very busy since we got back. We had a great time on our trip. We think the CCT did an excellent job in every city we went to. Thank you for all of your help.
One note. The hotel in Zangdian was a 3 star hotel. The low on the night we were staying was 2 C and they did not have the heat turned on. Also the bathroom smelled really bad. They tried to get rid of it but could not. Other than that the trip was excellent.
