Wow... I was just looking at the distances I just traveled on my new world map. I knew I had gone a long way (the 36 hr train ride was evidence of that) but I didn't realize quite how far. In comparison to the US:

(The way the crow flies)

Yantai to Jinan = Philadelphia to Pittsburgh
Jinan to Chongqing = Philadelphia to Orlando
Chongqing to Wuhan = Philadelphia to Chicago
Wuhan to Zhangzhou = Philadelphia to Cleveland
Zhangzhou to Yantai = Philadelphia to Detroit

China is big...
