China!

China has been really fun so far. Highlights have include a full body massage (when they say full body, they mean full body), visiting an old China town, bargaining for my first items, learning some basic words (hello, thank you, how much is this), going to the cloth markets (I had two skirts and a dress made each for about 100 RMB's, which is roughly $10), riding bikes through Shanghai, going to markets, eating at a brasilian restaurant, trying Chinese candy, and swimming everyday. The last part of this week we plan on hiking the yellow mountain and next week we're going to Beijing. We also plan on going to a silk factory and the Shanghai zoo. So far it's been quite the adventure. I'm still waking up at 4am and getting tired around 9pm, but you know. C'est la vie. Anyway, I'll keep you posted. Does anyone want me to bring them back anything? A nice fan? Some chopsticks? I can't view the blog, so I can't see the comments people leave (I think it might be blocked because I'm in china), so if you want me to bring you anything email me. That's all.

well even though you can't see it, it'll make you laugh later. C'est, like the word say, la, like a note to follow so, vie, like the letter V.

Full body massage? Awkward...
Anyway, I heard that you hated it. I don't think I would like it either.
