We are leaving tomorrow–really! I thought I would leave this blog till tonight but think it best to check it off this morning it’s on the to-do list that keeps me up at night. We pick up visas and passports this evening; we have plane tickets and Chinese cash. Nous sommes prets–we are ready!
Forecast for Jiaxing when we arrive on Wednesday is for a balmy 31 degrees. Here’s hoping our ride from the airport is air conditioned. By the time we clear customs, find our folks from Jiaxing Secondary and make our way out of the airport and drive to Jiaxing, it will be early evening. Great timing for jet lag recovery! Maybe we will walk to the local Walmart to pick up some things–it appears to be in our new neighbourhood–then stop in at the local for a cold pint. Wait, different country. Will take it as it comes.
Sam has taken over my phone, same number. Don’t call! We will be skyping , blogging and emailing regularly. So with our friends singing a rousing rendition of “How can I miss you if you won’t go away?” we are off! Cheers, everyone.
