Alot of you know that I am currently in Hong Kong and headed for the Mainland of China . . . we have been taking some pictures and video (granted our videos arent the best - our camera is kinda crappy, but you can kinda see what's going on) . . . just thought I would share the links to the albums

Our day in London with Koenraad's parents (his parents are the people in the pictures):

Our first day on the mainland . . . pictures of Koenraad and I in there too . . . doesn't happen often - I avoid cameras like the plague, but it is very important to our contacts in China to have photos of us, so there is no avoiding it. We got treated to Chinese afternoon tea . . . so much fun!

Been busy . . . the days are long, but fortunately they are not long like they are in the US . . . we really only work for 6 hours a day, but we usually end up doing dinner with our factory contacts and Chinese dinner can run in excess of 2 hours.

When we first got here, the weather was divine, but it has taken a turn for the hotter . . . fortunately the people we deal with at the factories are pretty good about making sure we are given plenty of A/C or fans - whatever we need to stay cool & comfortable.

We have a bunch of photos & videos that we need to get online yet for people to see, but we have had alot of late nights and tonight we had the rare opportunity of an early night, so we decided pampering in the form of Chinese foot massage was on the agenda.

Koenraad and I have been on the Chinese mainland now for about 5 days and the days are beginning to blur together a little bit. The 13 hour time difference doesn't help matters any and I keep forgetting what day it is - fortunately I have my itinerary with me to remind me :) We have 8 days left on the mainland before we head back to Hong Kong for 2 more days and then we return to the States via London, UK. We will have about 1/2 day in London to do whatever and once we are back, i think we are taking a couple of jet lag days before we go back to business as usual in the import business, which will include being gone for all but approx. 3 weeks of the next 3 months.

All in all, everything is pretty good . . . thankful that my energy levels are up right now and that Koenraad is here in China with me.

Racer, last time we spoke, your mom was doing very poorly. Can you please update me?

I miss chatting with everyone and look forward to being back in a normal time zone in about 2 weeks :)

Take care, all!
