Sifu Ed and Sifu JoAnn’s 2015 China Travel Log, Part 5. Ekata’s own Sifu Ed and Sifu JoAnn have participated in an American delegation to China, visiting historic sites, experiencing local culture and practicing mindfulness with the Chinese masters. This is the fifth in a series of posts chronicling their journey:

Yesterday was a big travel day. We started off by seeing Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City in Beijing before flying to Shanghai late in the evening. Beijing is an interesting contrast to the modern Shanghai. The skyscraper in the background of the photo is the 2nd largest building in the world. We shopped, ate and went to a wonderful garden today.  Click here to see photo gallery.

Master Zhou took us to his Shanghai apartment and tomorrow we travel 3 hours away to his home town!

We look forward to seeing everyone when we get back!
