Hello from China!! ^^  
I'm just dropping a quick line to say hello from China. ^^ I've been really busy sightseeing and spending time with friends, so I haven't really had the time to check up on email and things until now. Right now I'm in Xi'an and both of my friends seem to have fallen asleep for the night, leaving me some alone time with the computer. :D

So far, I guess that I've done a lot, lot, LOT of sightseeing! I saw the Great Wall last Monday, and the terra-cotta soldiers today, which crosses two wonders of the world off my list, yay!!! ^^ So far the best moment was watching some guy try to walk too far onto the ice at the Summer Palace and fall through. He was muddy up to his knees (in below-freezing temperatures) before he got out. I suppose I'm mean for laughing, but he wasn't in any danger and it was pretty funny. ^^;; My favorite place was actually the summer palace as well.

Oh, and according to the chinese government, China invented everything thousands of years before the rest of the world, and are better at everything anyways, to boot. Oh propaganda! :D;;;; But I have to give them this: Chinese food in China is a hundred times better than anywhere else I've ever had chinese food. There's not even a comparison. Mmmm!

My favorite phrase in chinese is "wo ju dao!" Or something like that.. It means "I know!!" and it's the best to say to Greg's boyfriend Shu Lei when he says something that is completely obvious.. again.

Thanks for updating your journal. I'm relieved your other friends were worried about your safety too, I guess it's not just a mom thing after all. I'm glad you're having fun. I also am looking forward to your pictures. Love you!
