China the greatest of the great nation by Melissa Alibo

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I laughed my way through Melissa’s voyage in China. It is a travel guide through Shanghai and Beijing through a foreigner’s eyes kind of a Lost in Translation point of view. In fact once you land on Melissa’s site you can also read about her other travels to Morocco, Peru, Zanzibar. Get this woman a publisher these are the funniest travel stories and so real.

If you are wondering who Melissa is, here is a photo of her, she travels more than anyone I know. Recently she was in London, New York, Hawaii, Seoul, Shanghai and Beijing and I’m sure I left something out and that was all in less than a month.
