2. Rackham Building


The Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies Building (or Rackham as students call it) was my next stop on my #UmichBuldings adventure. The building was opened in 1938 and went through a massive restoration from 1999-2002 which is documented in a booklet found throughout the building. The restoration is outstanding and makes Rackham a must-visit building. […]

1. Modern Languages Building

I searched the online ticket system a couple more times and the only cheap option was a 20 hour slow train to Shanghai. Although the slow train […]

Arriving to China


The original plan was to enter China by ferry leaving the port in Incheon, South Korea and arriving to Qingdao, China. However, due to time constraints, Caleb and I purchased tickets to Qingdao from a low-cost airline which came out cheaper than the ferry.  Early Sunday morning, we boarded JeJu Air at Incheon International Airport and landed in Qingdao an hour […]
