China Trip

Rush hour all day longgg

Saturday, August 8, 2009

Currently we are sitting in a traffic jam on the way back Bejing. Let me tell you driving here is crazy! People are everywhere walking in the street while cars are wizzing past them. I am a small town girl from Wisconsin but even for the new jersey kids this traffic is startling. I just hope not to get hit every time I cross the street. Maybe a little time away from this craziness will be good for my blood pressure.

What an interesting point you raise: safety and traffic. I had wondered what travel inside cities was like with a population that defines 200,000 as a town. You are at or near the halfway point of the trip, and I know from having traveled with students on summer trips for over a decade that this is a turning point on the trip. Halfway done and halfway toward home. Nerves sometimes fray. Relax and enjoy the quiet down time; you certainly don't have much on this trip.

Do be careful when you walk. I am a small town girl and now live on a farm in a place time forgot, and I love it that way.

Silly as this may sound to you, I am sending prayers your way for all of you on the trip. I know you are in the best of hands, so do enjoy your time while being vigilant with safety in traffic. Enjoy. I love your posts.

I too am a small town girl. We complain about traffic around here if the light doesn't change fast enough. Like R. J. I enjoy the small town life. I thought it was interesting that you mentioned traffic in your post. This morning on my way to church services, I, and two other drivers, came to a four-way stop sign at almost the same time. It was almost hilarious to watch us trying to get the other person to go first. When one of the drivers finally decide to go, we all waved goodbye to each other. You gotta love a small town!
