    Hi Bonnie. I've started the thread here so get those photos posted. icon_smile.gif Can't wait to see the first entries.
    By the way, I made the thread a regular item -- rather than a sticky. I can always change it if necessary.

    Bonnie G - wow, a new life in Beijing. We would love to hear about them. I hope you can share some of the non-food things too with all of us. Although I know Japan, the mainland China is so foreign to me.

    Boy did I have a bad day yesterday, DH woke up fine but as he started getting ready for work started to get pale, sweaty and then started vomiting - had to call in to work sick. That kept up all day and I was starting to try and figure out how I was going to get him to a doc but by late afternoon he was feeling better and wanted something to eat. Well, we still don't have much in the way of cooking here so I had to venture out to find a resturant, try to get them to understand that I wanted a non-spicy soup and steamed rice (I did that by pointing to pictures on the menu) but then had to try and explain that I wanted to have it to take out. Eventually got that done, brought the food home and then he couldn't eat it icon_twisted.gif icon_rolleyes.gif At any rate, thank goodness he was better today and was able to go to work. I'm just grateful I didn't get it, guess it was some kind of 24 hour bug.

    Tomorrow is Saturday here so we'll be doing some shopping and then hope to have time to visit Tinnamiin Square and the Forbidden City - want to get that done before the real tourist season hits and it becomes really crowded.

    What a relief that your hubby is feeling better. Getting sick when you don't know the language is scary. Now you need to find out what the company recommends for medical attention.

    Still very jealous of all the experiences you have ahead of you.

    His company was very supportive through his illness even had his Chinese asst. call to see if we needed to go to the hospital. We felt it was just a 24 hour thing so decided to wait and glad we did. But it was wonderful knowing that there's people here willing to help when you need it.

    Glad he's feeling better as we have a busy weekend planned.

    Hope your weekend is great. We are at our holiday house at the beach until tomorrow (Monday). Phone is out, dongle doesn't work at the house. So the dongle and I drove to a signal so I could check email. The things we do to stay online. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Know what you mean Peggy, when we moved I told DH - the apt. doesn't matter, just make sure I have high speed internet.

    We had planned to do some sight seeing on Saturday but woke up to one of the famous Beijing Spring sand storms - it was really strange, the wind blowing and this fine cloud (couldn't really see it, just felt it) of red sand in the air. It would get in your mouth and eyes and covered the cars. Now I know why so many of the natives here where those face masks. At any rate, as the wind was very cold, we decided to put of any major outside trips and just went grocery shopping and then stayed in.

    Sunday we woke up to blue skiies and much improved weather so took off to see Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, we started out early with breakfast and then took a cab to the Square. The square was huge, it's supposed to be the largest gathering place in he world and the symbol of modern China. This is the place that Mao established the People's Republic. We got to see the goose stepping guards marching in it but it was really a barren place with no trees, benches or decorations. I guess they had to leave room for all the people it holds for the demonstrations.

    From there we crossed over to the Forbidden City, that was much more interesting to me. This is the place where the emperiors used to live and no one was allowed in except for him, (the only un-castreated male) his eunichs, concubines. The roof tiles were all in yellow the royal color that no one else was allowed to use. This place goes back to the 1400's and it's hard to believe something so old could remain in such good condition. There is a lot of history here, but what really amazed me was the number of people that where there even though it is not considered aa peak season. We thought we had beat the crowds, boy I'd hate to think what the busy season is like.

    After we left there Bob managed to follow a map and found the most excitiing shopping area located about 4 city blocks from where we where. This is not an eaxy task as the maps are all in Chinese so I was really proud of him.

    The street was blocked off from traffic and had everything you can imagine, gucci, rolex, and all the other upscale shopes. However; my fav was a side street that had the real Chinese experiance. little shopes that you bartered for prices that had everything from food to silk and chopsticks. I loved it.

    Well, I'm off to post some pictures in "what is this"

    I've heard about these sand storms in China. I can imagine how strange it must feel on your skin. BTW, have you noticed any air pollution there so far? Not sure if they are seasonal problems.

    Glad your husband is doing better now Bonnie. Do you have your own car in Beijing or are you using a public transportation?

    Really loving your adventures in China....living through you.

    We are using public transporation, wouldn't want to drive around here and the company gives us a monthly stipend to cover the cost. Taxis are really cheap and easy to catch, Bob has tried the subways but hasn't quite mastered that yet.

    As for pollution, other than the dust storms, we really haven't seen any yet. The Chinese govt. is adamant about cleaning up the air - limiting cars to driving on alternate days depending on the last number of the license plates, the ones with the means (like my boss) even have two cars one with an even number and one with an odd. So he can drive each day. Kind of defeats the purpose unless you are one of the many that can't afford two cars. I've learned they even give tickets here if your car is dirty - hmmm; the states could take a lesson on that one.

    Every day is a new adventure here as I find new and differant information. Glad to have you sharing it with me. icon_smile.gif

    Bonnie -- it's wonderful to have some first-hand insight into China today. I have a very dear Chinese friend here in Australia (I've been lucky enough to have known her since my first days here in the early 1980s), but she knows China so well that I see/hear about it through her 'seasoned' eyes. You give a fresh focus, which is so appreciated.

    So when are you receiving visitors? icon_wink.gif

    Nice to know the bed is ready. icon_biggrin.gif
    Who knows -- maybe I will make it to China while you are there.
    And maybe you'll make it to Australia, too. Better go make up a bed.

    One of our dreams has always been to visit Australia, everything we've read about it has intrigued us. Trouble is it's sooooo far away from everywhere we've ever been, but hey - someday we just may take the leap so get that bed ready. icon_cool.gif
