Jet Lag is a lot like drugs...


just without the fun part. I left Shanghai Saturday night at 11:30pm (our local time) and arrived Monday morning at 2:06am. Being delayed in Newark for almost four hours was not in the plan, but Mother Nature decided to blast through with some ugly storms.


I have over 2,000 pictures. A ton of stories and apparently, I left about 7 pounds over there. It won't hurt any of those Chinese girls that weigh 90 pounds. Chopsticks have a definite learning curve, but I mastered them! And still lost weight.

Above, you'll see me at the Great Wall. Wow. Seriously. Wow. But since I felt a lot like I feel today, I only walked up far enough to get a photo. I'm wearing a visor because China really scared my hair.

I'm so glad to be home!


****Now, please go down and look at Dana's post!*****

Holidays are great fun, but I think walking the great wall of china may have been a bit too adventerous in that heat?! Yep?

The Great Wall is a bitch to climb, isn't it? There's no casual strolling on that thing! I'm so excited to hear more about your trip. I loved the comment about China scaring your hair. It looks great to me.

You are back already? I thought you were going for ten weeks? Glad you had a good time.
Dana, I read your post too! Very interesting.

You were at the Great Wall in China! Can you believe it!? Way Cool! Nice pic too. I really like Chinese food and always eat with Chopsticks. I may not handle them like an expert, but I think it’s half the fun.
