Judith went to China in May 2011 and this journey was the sequence of an art and culture tour to China in 2009. Both trips were organised by Amy Loewan for the Visual Arts Association of Alberta (VAAA).
While the first trip focused on Eastern China, this time we explored the west, the Chinese part of the Silk Road, from Kashgar or Ürümqi, to Dunhuang and Xi'an, ending in Shanghai.
Several local guides shared their knowledge and insight and added much to the understanding of China's complex history and society.

In March/ April 2009, Judith Kunzlé went on an art and culture tour to China. After a few days in Beijing, she joined a tour of the Visual Arts Alberta (VAAA) and together they visited many fascinating places on the way to Shanghai. The group of 16 were artists and art-interested people, including guide Amy Loewan, artist and art instructor at the University of Alberta, Canada.
The highlights of this tour were a great mix of culture and nature, of new, old - and very old!
