Well I've now been in China for 4 days and it's been quite the experience. KIP China just officially started today, but a group of MBA consumer marketing students got to China on Sunday night and took a side trip to Hangzhou.
Hangzhou is a gorgeous resort town (albeit one with over 6 million residents) that is based around West Lake. It's known for green tea, silk, and some amazing old pagodas and temples. My favorite part was the Linying Temple, which has some amazing statues of Buddha and is an active monestary.
Yesterday, we finished off our time in Hangzhou by biking around the lake, and then boarded a plane to Beijing to start the official KIP China part of our trip. It's been great so far and I'm so excited for the full experience with the group of 18 MBA students. We visit the Great Wall tomorrow, so I'm going to get some sleep to get ready for that. I'll be sure to post pics of that visit soon!
