Goodbye China

The top ten things we've learnt whilst in China:

1. Queue...what is a queue?
2. If it is webbed it is not a chicken's foot.
3. It's your job...there is no word for please!
4. On the toilet front, be thankful if there is a cubicle of any kind.
5. Caucasian blonde girls are funny to look at.
6. LOUD NOISES!!! It is ok to be ridiculously loud in any situation and shoot people with water guns when completely unnecessary.
7. Bartering...decide on a price and don't move from it (usually a third of what they're asking for).
8. Strike a pose!! You need to go the extra mile to get the perfect picture.
9. Some things are lost in translation...... signs here are hilarious..... Lasagne Brownie anyone?
10. If all else fails, just laugh!

Glad you're both laughing your way through the craziness! Looks like you've fitted loads into your time there. Enjoying the pics and looking forward to some Chinese food cooked by you both when you get back!! xxx

Just had a big catch up on the blog-time. I can't believe how much you've been up to! I am more than jealous of all the boats and pretty dresses that have been involved. Jo - you have more restraint than me, I'd be destitute by now. Keep having fun and the blog is a great read, looking forward to more (and to being a guinea pig when you get back for the all this wonderful food you've been learning to cook).
Miss you as we're approaching mulled cider season here! xxx
