Success at Da Ling --By Jeremiah Owyang

We did it! This was really an incredible day. We piled into the bus (over 22 of us) and went to Da Ling (the pinyin spelling) and our distant family greeted us! There was quite a bit of excitement from folks as we exchanged family trees, pictures, and stories. Later, we visited the ancestral homes (where my great great grandfather lived) and saw some important landmarks such as the Pagoda, the tree planted by my great great grandfather, my great grandmothers grave, and attended a large outdoor banquet in celebration of the elders and our homecoming.
