Ni Hau ya'll!

We are having a great time in China. We have seen so much and done so much and we are only half-way through the trip. I have already taken @ 700 pictures and I can't wait to go through them and show you all the sites we have seen! I have always heard about how many people live in China - OMG!!!!! I have NEVER in my life been in such a crowded place! The traffic is a nightmare, and there doesn't seem to be any particular rules of the road except it seems like whoever gets the front of their car in the space first wins! One thing is for sure, people do not tal on their cell while driving (they have to pay too much attention to other drivers - lol) It is funny to see the roan shared by cars, trucks, busses, motorcycles and bicycles though!

I can't get on fb over here (I'm thinking that it may be a site that the Chinese govt have banned) so someone tell my fb buddies hello for me)

I will also say that this is the HOTTEST and MOST HUMID place I have ever been! Beijing and Guelin were almost unbearable - as soon as you walked outside the hotel you were already dripping with sweat :( We are in Xian now and it is alot like Atlanta temperature.

We've had some great food too.

Oh, and the Chinese are very fascinated with Americans - expecially those of us with blonde hair. My son and I have been stopped several times by Chinese families a wanting to take a picture with us. Most of the the time they just want hinm in the photo - it's hilarious! We've also caught people trying to be sneaky and take our picture, it's funny when they realize we see them! Many times they will just cone stand next to us and have someone take the picture. I am surprised at how few American tourists we have seen - we've seen alot of Europeans, but not many Americans at all.

Well, I need to go. Just wanted to drop a nline to all my cheffer buddies. Take care and I'll have so much more to share with you when I get home next week.

Miss you all!

Nimen hao (to you and your family)

I'm so glad you're enjoying Zhongguo! I studied there in 1985, when there were no McDonald's etc. I wish I had been able to go to Guilin.

Please post your pics when you return!

Zaijian!
