Shop til We Drop?

      A group of us from the University of Northern Iowa Instructional Technology cohort is taking a trip to Beijing, China for the Flat Classroom Conference next month.  We have been recieving lots of information about all things China, but of the most interesting so far are the shopping markets.  We have been told that our Dollar is going to go pretty far on our shopping excursions and I am truly looking forward to this.  Below are some of centers in Beijing that might be of some interest to us.
