I'm gonna be travelling in china starting on 10/31! I'm really excited. I'm starting my trip in Beijing, making my way west to Lanzhou and visiting my friend who's working in the Peace Corps teaching English there, then making my way down to Shanghai and leaving from there on 11/30. I'm going to be travelling alone except for whatever daytrips I make out of Lanzhou with my friend. And I plan on visiting some smaller places inbetween these three stops. I've got a guidebook and I've been practicing some basic Chinese. I'm going to try see the most I can for the least $. Has anyone here been to China? Does anyone have any advise on places to see or things to be aware of? Will I be able to access MR.com from behind the great firewall of China?
