Tuesday night study session  
I'm feeling so excited about my upcoming trip!  I've got the carnet sent in (of course someone after the fact caused me to change one peice of gear for another but it won't _really_ matter... I hope) and most of the gear packed.  I'm reading manuals for a few of the new technologies I'm bringing and  now I'm (finally) starting to think about the language.  They speak Mandarin, although  their own dialect of it.  Basically what this means is that I've got zero chance of surviving without a translator holding my hand.  Still, good fun to try.
I feel: chipperchipper

You must be soooooooooooo excited. I hope you'll take lots and lots of pictures and post some on el-jay. I hope you have a fantastic time.

When do you go?

OK, I just scrolled back all the way to your discussion of Lent, and I didn't see any mention of any trip to China. I must have missed the introductory information some time ago. When are you going? For how long? For work?

Oh, and, KEWL!

Just learn two things:
"How much does it cost?"
"Where is the bathroom?"
Knowledge of Numbers helps.

But this is SO VERY COOL! Have a great time. And if you have any coins left over I collect things like that (ok who doesn't collect money when they can) But i really like coins and even paper money from other countries.

Enjoy your self!
