Getting Ready

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

Hello again,

We are getting closer and closer till the adventure begins! All of us are getting very very excited. I was at Barnes and Nobels recently with Maha and we found a really cool new program. How it works is you download the technology onto your ipod, and it works like a playlist and is basicaly a dicionary on your ipod. This will come in very handy in China helping us with our Mandrin.

Recently, we had one of our last China meetings before we leave. Our whole families got together and we talked more and more about the trip. We went over the packing lists and what are good things to bring. What a chore packing will be since we have to carry all of our luggage. Hopefully we bring all the right things. This china party was a lovley night, its so much fun all getting to know eachother better and eachothers families. Plus my mom made some delicouse food which is always good:)

I also want to thank all of you for following my blog. Hopefully you will really enjoy following my trip and learning more and more about China with me!

I also included a photo of all of us girls at prom and will be adding more pics soon!
