The big country

There are some things that trouble me, but I can't for the life of me think of a single thing to be concerned about right now.
I would love to tell you about everything, but that will have to wait.
All of my preconceptions of this country are changing and not only do I wish I could afford to stay here for another month or so writing essays on my thoughts (and getting paid for doing so) , but for the third time in my life the language barrier is causing me to go a little crazy. I will tell you all about it when I get back on Saturday

I only saw the southern tip of China and it was all industry and polluted. It'd love to get back and away from all of that...

I would like a report on the food, por favor. In the meantime, enjoy!

I am intrigued...

I look forward to hearing about it, unless you discover China has no Asian women. Then you'd better lie.

Would that be MY Saturday or YOUR Saturday? The uncertainty is interfering with my weekend plans.

My sister and her family just visited China last month. My brother in law is trying to import a certain type of granite to the US from there.

Well, that's an interesting way to leave us all hanging!

BOO

Its Halloween!

I never got paid for the essays or the thesis I wrote :(

It must be great to get away from the ho hum of everyday life. I envy you. I do hope you will be posting the pictures not only of your trip, but your Halloween party too. Can't wait to see the excited faces of grossed out children and adults that attended. As well as the beautiful and exotic countryside of China.
ciao for now

Sounds like you're having a wonderful time in spite of the language barrier.
