The time has come!
After 6 months of anticipation and planning, I'm leaving for China...tomorrow! I have my passport and China visa and I'm almost ready! I've been given lots of advice; everything from - take 500 one-dollar bills with me to take 2 Tablespoons of Pepto Bismol before each meal!
My son counseled me NOT to wear a fanny pack and a camera around my neck or I'll look like a tourist. So...if my 5'10" frame, size 11 shoes, white skin, blue eyes, and gray hair don't give me away as a tourist, the fanny pack will! I've been told to prepare to have people stare at me and even have their picture taken with me! Keep your eye on the Asian you-tube for videos of the "Great White Height!"
I've given my husband a tutorial on how to upload pictures to my blog throughout the 2 weeks I'm gone. I won't be able to visit your blogs while in China but I'll see you when I return. Take care!
I gotta run. I need to buy a fanny pack!
Zai jian (farewell)
