A quick update
Yesterday I arrived in Shaxi. As of now, we are staying at a small, traditional inn run by a local man and his family. We will be staying here for the next few days. I am currently visiting a local Internet cafe where I have had my first connection in about 1 1/2 days. It is really nice here, as we are staying in the middle of a low lying valley. Because my connection is rather spotty, photos are being posted through the Delivering hope Facebook page.
