In the summer of 2012, my family spent a month-and-a-half in China, mostly in Shanghai. My wife taught undergraduate courses in a summer program. For those of you who are interested in reading about our adventures, I set up this page. It includes links to every post I wrote about our trip, in the order in which they were written, from the beginning of July to the middle of August.
As always, enjoy!
