China!!! Let the preparations begin

These babies came in the mail a few days ago. I have also been filling out all of the VISA paperwork and getting the passports sent in so I can't help but start to get excited about going. I'm in the info gathering process--so if anyone has any info to pass on--let me know. I have been working on my "lip-zipping" and my "yes-sirring" and we learned the most important of all chinese words-----"Ping Cow" which may end up saving my life. (translation=Rice) I'm not exactly sure how adventurous I will be for the Chinese food. I guess we'll see.

My only advice...Don't order Chicken if you are squeamish about having the feet and head served with the dish - I guess they do this to 'prove' that it is really the chicken they used in your dish. (A friend of mine spent the summer in China and she said that she thought of me every time she ordered chicken.)

WOW! China! Do you remember Jon and Treva Smith in our ward a long time ago. Anyways, he just got back from China and he loved it. Is this a fun trip or a business trip?
