I found these at Wal Mart yesterday and picked them up for the trip. They were 97 cents and have a $1 coupon on the back for Hefty bags so really they will end up being free. I am sure we need these for packing.
There are so many details to think about. When I talked to Mei, she suggested doing some of the stuff now. So here we are. We are going to go ahead and talk to our bank about how much notice they need to exchange our money for new money for the trip. I'm also beginning to make a packing list. She said that our guide will be able to help us find a local person to do our laundry that will be tons cheaper than using the hotel.
She also said that we will be staying at the White Swan because that is one of the agency's traditions. We were told that the hotel was closing in 2008 for renovations but so far they have not. I am really glad they make all the travel arrangements for us. Our travel fee includes all meals as well. Of course, if we chose to eat other than the arrangements we will have to pay for it.
Susan, Riz and Sophia are back from China and she has been filling us with great advice! Scott and Hope are in China now! They have Izabella already! I just LOVE watching the magic happen! I can't wait until it is our turn. I find myself emotional over the whole process. I tear up often and just know I'll be a wreck when it is our turn. Mei told me that she would waiting patiently if I cried when she calls! I just went ahead and told her to expect it! I've never been a great list person but I'm about to change that!
