2 days to go till takeoff!
I am running around today like a mad woman because well.....apparently 4 years isn't enough time to get it all together.
Here's a tip that didn't come in our travel package and SHOULD HAVE, you need brand new spanking $5, $10 and $20 bills. We only ordered new $100's, but you have to tip with American new dollars. So get your new bills now and put them back. It's about $300 in American tipping dollars, or so they tell me.
Gotta scoot, to much to do to blog.

Hi..I just wanted to suggest a "must go to" shop while in guangzhou...it's called " a gift from china" I bought our daughter's christening dress there and they also have lots of unique keepsakes for " gotcha day or family day" anniversary gifts. Some of the profits of the store go to the children waiting. I also went to nanchang and the store across from the gloria hotel has great silver bracelets for your daughter. I also bought one for me and they engraved her chinese name inside. I wanted to buy her silver bell bracelet from the province she was born. Have a great trip..treasure every moment ...you will miss china when you get home! Mindy :)

SOOOOOOO excited for you T!!!!

And things must have really changed in China since I was there, not once did anyone reject my perfectly worn out American dollars. :)

Good luck with the last minute packing!!!!!

Whew...my agency took care of ALL the tip stuff (except when I sneaked away on my own, of course). When I did sneak off the Chinese money was all good :0)
