What to Do When You Win $10,000
After many month of planning, we’re finally off and rolling. On June 10, we began our hitchhiking journey in X’ian, one of the ancient capitals of dynastic China and the starting point for the Silk Road. Over the next few months, we will slowly make our way west, visiting National Parks and cultural sites until we end our trip in Kyrgzstan and Uzbekistan. As we travel, we will explore how China’s break-neck growth is impacting the country’s natural spaces as well as the way the Chinese think of these spaces.
