There was is so much to talk about with a trip like this. I tried to keep everyone up to speed on my Facebook page (http://facebook.com/theericbeard if you want to connect-just type “blog” into your message so I know who you are), but I only got a portion of the stories out…

I spent my time working at the Olympic Facilities in Nanjing (the Olympics weren’t just held in Beijing in 2008)and even got special access to the track and field that Usain Bolt set the record for the 100, 200 and 4×100 meter relay at the 2008 Olympics.
Yes I ran on the same track he did, the time was not official, but I might have pulled a 9.68.

We did get to do some sightseeing in “Old Nanjing” which still has 40 foot walls around the city and only four roads going into/out of the city. Amazing that the walls were still in such good shape after thousands of years. The Nanjing City Wall the world’s longest, built in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) is impressive for sure.

I shopped with my friends Jeff, Donna, Josh, Alanna and our Translator Gi Peng (who’s name I probably misspelled). The markets in the heart of the city were the oldest I had ever seen, even though much of the inner city had to be rebuilt after World War II and the Japanese during the massacre of Nanjing invasion.
