Heading to China

I'm off to do some physical therapy volunteer work in Chengdu, China.  I'll be working at an orphanage, Chengdu Children's Welfare Institute, training the caregivers and therapists in an effort to improve their hands-on treatment for kids in need.  I'll be meeting children of all ages and I am very excited for the visit. 

Chengdu is the "Heavenly State," has a population of 15 million people, and is home to Giant Pandas.

My colleagues and I are planning a layover in Beijing where I plan to visit the Great Wall of China and learn Tai Chi from a master!

I've packed my bags, including this extra suitcase filled with teddy bears for the orphanage .  Hopefully I can close it!
