We find ourselves at a very comfortable position moving into Week 3 having accomplished our goals of conducting the focus group surveys, hitting the target goal of 1000 respondents via Qualtrics online survey and also performing the shipping study as requested by the client.

The majority of our final week in China was spent in Beijing. We reached Beijing in the afternoon, and, after we checked into our hotel, we worked on our project. We planned Friday of that week to visit the Great Wall, so it was important that we finished as much work possible. I was really looking forward to this visit to The Great Wall. It has been on my list of places to see for some time now. I've heard so many things about it, such as you can see it from space! It turns out this was a myth.

The purpose was to promote the recognition of a system for the international registration of trademarks.
