China Trip March 14-28, 2019

Well not sure where to start and this trip happened about two months ago. I guess I can say that March 13th I was working my last Badger State Brewery Winter’s Farmers Market and drove down to Chicago that night to take an early flight to China on March 14th. This was the worst place I stayed at the whole trip because it was a musty room, though every other room was great to excellent.

I meet so many nice people and only minor inconveniences during the whole trip. It was truly life changing and wonderful.

A great story I have about Beijing Airport is a few hours before boarding Air China to Yibin I was sitting and an elderly lady with her daughter and her daughter’s baby sat next to me. The elderly lady got up and her daughter sat next to me with her baby. We chatted and she mentioned that she is the one who gets international films for the Chinese people and she was taking her 10-month old baby girl on her first flight. I was also her baby’s first foreigner and the baby would touch me gently and stare at me. She was cute. They were going to the Hong Kong Film Festival and the mother figured it was a short enough flight for the baby. She mentioned going to Cannes, Sundance, Toyko Film Festival, etc…. I told her why I was in China and she took my card. Just one of many lovely moments I had in China, though I wished I got her card.

Please look at the pictures below and the captions and I will continue my story in other blog posts.

Getting off the flight Beijing to Yibin. There are at least 1  and a half million people in Yibin and only 2 gates for the entire airport, obviously, people do not leave Yibin much or use other transportation besides planes to arrive and leave in Yibin.
