China....Here I COME!!!!

I'll be flying to Beijing on May 22nd. Beijing looks like this:




and flying out of Shanghai on June 6th. Shanghai is gorgeous:

Saying that my parents are fabulous is such an understatement. I couldn't afford a trip like this right now. This is probably my uncles' last trip to China, so they are sending me. Otherwise, I'd never even attempt to go to China. My Love doesn't want to go and people that want to fly 18 hours to see the other side of the world are few and far between.

I'm still in shock. I can't believe I'm going to China in 10 weeks!

That sound great! Mind if I take you loves place since she's not going? I like planes and am alway amazed at how the huge, heavy, plane always somehow manages to get off the ground. I'm like a kid again. I CALL THE WINDOW SET! Hey, have a fun time!

OMG that is somewhere I really want to visit - take me with you please?

My neice is going to Beijing in about three months time. She managed to get on a course where she we learn Mandarin which will qualify her then to teach English in China. We are all in awe!

I am so, so happy for you. I spent a little time in China and FREAKING loved it. It's fantastic! Expect to be quite the spectacle with that milky skin of yours. I was photographed and petted (yes, I was) and at one point there was a line of locals waiting to see me.

:o)
