    Will do. China isn't that far from Australia. We're in the national capital -- so lots to see -- and only 3 1/2 hours by car from Sydney. Start planning.

    Good mornng all, I'll be here in Beijing at least a year - longer if DH decides. But it's nice as he works 4 month and is off for 1 so we get a lot of vacation to travel and go home.

    Haven't met any other ex-pat women yet, haven't really had time but hope to soon. We do have 2 other ex-pat men that work with DH but that's about all for now.

    Hey everyone, a long-time Zaar member, Diane #2, lives in a small village in Nova Scotia.
    With the help of many Zaar members, her little community made it to the top 12 of a Kraft ice hockey competition. Now they've made it to the Top 5. You can help by casting some votes for them. It's free and fast and continues only until midnight 31 March. If you have a few moments to help out Diane and her community, check out her thread about it.

    I'm off to vote Diane, what a great idea.

    Hello All:

    I've had just a nice weekend thought I'd take the time to let you all know about it while Bob is fixing dinner - our first one at home and it's so nice after all the meals out.

    We've had great weather, sunshine, blue skiies and except for evening when the wind comes in much warmer. We were looking forward to spending some time outside, which meant a LOT of walking.

    We are sure learning alot about living over here. Saturday morning we got up and Bob had an address where the advertised American Breakfast - Steak & Eggs, boy we were really looking forward to that. So got up, left the house hungry and caught a cab to the silk market. With address and map in hand started walking what we thought was a block to the resturant. Well, first I have to tell you a city block in Beijing is a whole LOT longer than in the States. Then when we got there, didn't even know if it was the right spot but couldn't find it. After much searching (more walking) we finally gave up and walked back to our starting point - did find a Starbucks and had coffee and a muffin, good but not steak & eggs.

    Then when the Silk Market opened we went right in to be one of the first inside as that's when you can get the best prices. This place was AWESoME, I've never seen anything like it before. 6 floors of everything yu can imagine or want from Chinese lanterns, custom silk jackets to knock of hand bags. It was great and I kept thnking how much fun it would be with Kristy. At first it was overwhelming in the way they'd stop you and hold on to you to sell you things. That quote you a price of 350 yuen (about $50) and by the time you are done you pay 30 yuen (about $4) I was really nervous at first but by the end had gotten pretty good at it and can't wait to go back. I ended up finding Mom's doll - I've attached a picture for her, chinese silk scares for each of our sisters and Mom of course. leather belts for Bob and some silk tableclothes.

    After that we took a cab to this grocery store called Jenny Lu's and they had western groceries that I actually recognized, expensive but pait it for the comfort of knowing what we were buying. A fast cab ride then brought us home to rest before going out to dinner, since it Earth Day the light would be turned off for an hour on the Olympic Village so we walked over and while freezing took pictures it was pretty neat to watch. That about ended the day and we went home, had a glass of wine and went to bed.

    Today, it's cloudy and looks like rain, but this weekend we're planning a trip to the Great Wall.

    Bonnie, what an adventure you're having. Wonderful!!! icon_biggrin.gif

    Thanks also for the votes. It helps us get to the top prize, which would make a world of difference to the kids and our little arena.

    Many, many thanks. icon_biggrin.gif
