Observations in China- The cab rides are scary. No, I mean really scary!

The cab drivers in China are nuts, like everyone has laid claim to the same piece of road and is in some mad rush to get to it. Tonight, I thought the cabbie was going to collide with a wall, a bus, another cab, a merging SUV, a pedestrian, a guy on a scooter, a parked car, and several moving cars... all at the same time.

Ok... I'm exaggerating. It was a 10 minute cab ride so impending death was spread out... one near miss per minute.

Sophia and I had an unbelievable time whitewater rafting yesterday. Unfortunately we didn't get any pics but I will update with the details soon. By the way, I definitely recommend using Kern River Outfitters.
