Part 1 - Vancouver to Shanghai

Here are a few pictures from the China leg of the journey. Everywhere we went, Drake the Travel Uke was not far behind!

Nat and Leavitt brave it out on Mt. Huashan. Walking on a plank and a very large sheer cliff. It's no wonder why they are called "Danger Leavitts"!

My school's mascot and my Kala travel strapped to my back-- I am ready to join the Terracotta Warriors!

Nat, me and Leavitt before our big climb up Mt. Huashan. Ah yes, the sweat before the even bigger sweat! It may not look like much, but it's the even bigger mountain behind us that goes up and up and I'm pretty sure to outer space!

Leavitt (left) and I on our 4-star accommodations a.k.a. the hard beds on the train from Shanghai to Xian. Not bad for an overnight.

The hard part wasn't getting everyone to smile; the hard part was getting a picture with just us in it! Welcome to Shanghai!

Rainy day in Vancouver, Canada at Capilano Bridge. The bright yellow ponchos were a big hit.

The Kala Travel Uke Makes it to China!

Drake the Kala Travel uke at the Forbidden City. Very hot day, but not enough to hold us back on playing some awesome melodies!
