During a three week visit to southern China, I travelled with my family to the Guandong and Guanxi provinces, and then I continued solo through the Yunnan province. Though this was my fourth trip into some portion of China, it was both the most personal and adventurous foray to my ancestral country. We had reunions with seldom seen relatives, and during my solo leg, I ventured out to areas of Yunnan where I was forced to rely on my very basic command of Mandarin to get around.
