More Photos

Here are some more photos from the land of the Chinamen. Enjoy!
Our traveler’s checks in the grip of the Chinese banks ignorance!
The bank that finally let us cash in our dang traveler’s checks…MONEY IN HAND!! And it only took TWO months!
Sun-Yat Sen memorial building
Workin’ it out, Chinese style, with Monika Nordlander. You should have seen the faces we were getting: Priceless!
This is an example of signs found in China. My favorites were #7, 6 and 4. Ohh China.
at the Chen Family compound (a Relief Society outing)

Some serious ivory sculpting
Koi anyone?
Being a domestic diva: making bread with friend Leslie (don’t mind the awful picture, a little Chinese lady who doesn’t know picture etiquette took it.)
More fun with fish!

A very unusually clear day: view from our apartment
Fire drill, Chinese style
Our friends the Nordlander’s adorable son Johnny Owen

Hey Stef, I found your blog from a comment on Ash Willis's blog. I can't believe how awesome your life is. I would love to travel the world like you and your husband. I bet it is so much fun. Anyway, I'd love to keep in touch with you and if you'd like I can add you to my blog (it's set to private because my husband is afraid of blog stalkers, haha) My email is marenvogel@gmail.com just email me and I'll add you! Take care!

Stef,
I found your blog through a comment on Natty's, how are you? I haven't seen you since High School I think. Feel free to check out my blog, www.themcdowellfamily.blogspot.com.

you are going to be such a cute mommy someday :). ANd poi fish are vicious fish don't you think? I mean, look at them crawling all over each other, except fish cant crawl. I bet if I believed in reincarnation then being a koi fish would be punishment. Unless i could be one at the Dole plantation then i could swim in pineapple jiuce all day long.. Ahhhhhhh
