As most of you know I will be leaving in 8 days for the wonderful and mystical Orient. The basic itinerary is 5 weeks in Japan, 10 days in Taiwan, 5 weeks in China, and a rejuvenating 4 days in Hawaii.
Needless to say, I can hardly wait.
See! I'm even armed with my very own fan thanks to my freshman year roommate from China!
Anyways, per request of my wonderful Grandma Kurtz, I've committed to blogging for the duration of my trip and to make the experience exciting for all parties involved each post will include an "I Spy". As the name of my blog implies, a paper crane will be strategically placed in one photo per post. But don't be fooled, once I make this crafty creature it will be no easy feat to find him (mug shots coming soon)! May the Fu (blessing, good fortune, good luck) be with you!
In the words of the popular song 'Cups' performed by Anna Kendrick,
"I bought my ticket for the long way round
The one with the prettiest of views
It's got mountains it's got rivers it's got sights to make you shiver
But it sure would be prettier with you"
