I’m almost there! …By noon on Saturday, I’ll be on a plane to China! (Barring delays or other unseen obstacles – let’s just ignore those, shall we?) The flight is about 13.5 hours long and there are no layovers (yess!!!). So, how’s the packing going, Jessie?
See the small rolling bag that I’m tiredly sprawled across? That’s the only bag I’m bringing. I figure that I’ll be much happier not schlepping numerous heavy bags around China and Hong Kong. Oh, and China Southern Airlines (the airline I’ll be flying from Beijing to Hong Kong) only allows one carry-on bag. I’m also bringing a small backpack and hoping by some miracle I’ll be able to jam it all into the rolly bag when the time comes. Never fear, friends! My courage always rises with every attempt to intimidate me (I’ll bet you don’t know where that quote is from!!).
So, here’s the THIH schedule while I’m in China: I have super guest posts by some awesome bloggers going up over the next 2 to 2.5 weeks. I’m very excited about these because the posts are so darn good! And you don’t get to read them yet, nyah nyah nyah!! 😛 Hopefully *fingers crossed* I’ll be able to blog from China because I’m bringing my computer. Unless Beijing bans WordPress or I write something inflammatory, I should be able to add some posts of my own during those two weeks. After those weeks, I have a few pre-written posts going up, but again, I hope I’ll be blogging at that point, too.
As you can imagine, I won’t be around the blogging community much during the next five weeks because I’m determined to enjoy every last moment of my time in China and Hong Kong, seeing as this will probably be my only trip there, well, ever. I’ve been wanting to go to China and Hong Kong for such a long time, this really is a dream come true 🙂 I promise to completely catch up on all of your blogs when I return, even if it takes a long time.
I’ll leave you with a last THIH-made meal, without instructions, just pictures:
Finally, here is a link that my sister D sent me, presumably to get me excited for China: 16 Items They Only Sell At Chinese Walmart.
See you (hopefully) on the flip side!
Q: I will miss you. Will you miss me? 😀
