I’m not packed. That’s right, I’m not packed! But we don’t leave for the airport until 7PM and it’s just turning 7 AM. So I have time for more shopping. I NEVER shop these days. No, I never shop for clothes. I always shop for new tech toys. But since I don’t need something cool for each day of the week for show off to students, I am out of the habit. I’m sure I will, as I always do, pack way too much for the two weeks, but that’s me. I still have time to hit the Gap and the Loft before I need to be at Tuiva’s.
We are still not jumping for joy for China, although it did help when I got a nice email from someone my brother works with at IBM, the head IBM lawyer for China, who happens to live in Beijing. He offered to pick us up at the airport. We have that all set, but just the offer was really cool, a nice way to begin the journey.
I have say that I am sure this trip will not be like our experience in Buenos Aries. We set the tour plans way in advance and it should be great. We have lowered our expectations and that’s the way to go.
I am just about ready to finish up. First a call to plan our SI’07 group, Betsy is coming to accept some money and take home her serving plates. That will officially finish my recital and I’m sad that it’s officially over now.
Off to China???
