T-0

Today's the day, we're leaving for our flight in a couple of hours. It's been quite a bit of work making sure that everything's ready to go. We've done quite a bit of shopping in the last week--too much for my tastes, but getting a new game makes me happy, and things like shampoo may come in fairly handy, so we've got it done.

Getting to this point already has been an adventure, with passports and moving and a wedding and honeymoon. But now, here we are, and it's about time for this new adventure to begin. We're quite excited to be going, although I can't say that I'm particlarly looking forward to this airplane ride. Oh well, at least part of my shopping got me some puzzle books, and I've always got reading material. We'll see if I end up regretting not getting a portable DVD player--battery life on those simply didn't seem significant enough to merit the cost and effort.

I've entertained myself with pencil and paper for years. One more day, I should be able to manage. And if not, I can always just keep asking "are we there yet?"

You _can_ get shampoo in China ;-P

Have a great trip!!! Keep us posted!

One thing -- disposable AA batteries in China suck. Buy rechargeables.
