Yes, I tried tripe and jellyfish. I also had eel today for lunch. It's very fishy and I would not recommend it. It tastes like anchovies.
Yesterday (Saturday) I went by myself to the Dongzhu Antique market. I got some really cool things - totally worthless I'm sure but they are cool and mom will like them. We also went to the black market - fun and scary! Back rooms that we had to sneak in and out of - very black market like. I got an LV for about $20.00...it looks real Hillary...so watch out!
Today we went to an ancient River Town - it's kind of like a Chinese Venice only poorer and way more tourist trap. It was fun but about 45/c or 100 degrees in the shade. I do not think I have ever sweat that much.
Tomorrow (Monday) we go to General Electric for a tour and then on Tuesday, US Bank in Shanghai. I leave on Thursday and do not want to think about it.
Tell Lora that Xi Gua (She-Gwa) means Watermelon in Chinese...and that I did see both Saguaw and Sheegwa and they looked mangi and not nearly as "neat" as on television.
Bye for now! I'll try to write more later...going to Starbucks now as I like to give the locals something to stare at!

- I work at a Christian School district only 4 miles from my home. The people there are full of grace and love and I am glad to be a part of this ministry. I have a neice and nephew whom I love dearly. They are 12 and almost 15 respectively. I have two amazing sisters and two amazing brothers-in-law. Of course, I would not be here if it were not for my mother agreeing to marry my dad. Good going mom! My parents are my life and I would literally be NOTHING without their unconditional love, support and care. You rock mom and dad. Then there's Will & Lora...their giggles are like sunshine and their parents crack me up too.
