Life in China

Life in China

Life in China is unlike life anywhere else in the world.  We’d be lying if we said it wasn’t a major culture shock moving here.  It took us a while to settle into daily life here.  But after almost two years living and experiencing China, we’ve come to love to quirks, peculiarities, food (yummmmm) and fascinating culture.  The following photos are snapshots of what its like to live in this unique country.
 
We will be continually updating this gallery as we explore more of China!
