Sarah is blogging

Sarah is also blogging the trip. We have not figured out how to have two profiles on the same blog, but she is posting with my name at if you want to check out her comments.

Last minute frenzy

So, I had to expedite the visas for China because you can't get them at the airport. I downloaded the forms and am reading all this stuff about how you have to have a third party do it for you and you must have 6 months left on your passport, yada yada. Download three forms, fill them out . . . and suddenly . . . NO, it can not be. How on earth can Sarah's passport be about to expire??? She hasn't even lived here 10 years yet.

Fact. For those of you, like me, who evidently can't read, let me tell you a secret - children's passports are only good for 5 years, not 10.

The madness began.
And, for the low price of a Yugo car (no pun intended), we now have everything we need to go to China,


Thank God.
