Stefanie, Yang Jie, is from Dachang in Hebei Province, about a three hour drive, south of Beijing. She is the oldest of three children. Her parents run a trucking company, transporting goods all over China, as well as selling and repairing trucks. Stefanie was raised in a lovely, spacious, courtyard home abutting a large corn field. Her grandparents and her siblings live in the home, while her parents live at the trucking company a short distance away. Stefanie was one Eve's roommates and she joined our class a bit late, as an auditor. Stefanie is a photojournalist and took lots of pictures of me and my daughter in China. Hopefully I will post some of them here. I visited Stefanie and her family in July and I hope to post a slideshow from that trip in the near future.
