We have received several questions about the apartment where Julie and I are staying. This post is dedicated to Chris and Xiao Xiao's apartment. Xiao Xiao and baby Eris are staying at her father's (Chinese Grandfather). Chris is back and forth staying with Xiao Xiao and sometimes sleeping here.

Julie and I have been sleeping in the master bedroom where there is a space heater. The building has central heat with radiators throughout. However the tenants and owners have not been able to agree to share the expense of turning on the system. Chris has two dogs so we also have to be mindful of which areas of the apartment are doggie-proof.

Our travelers’ bags and items are littered throughout the picture of the master bedroom. Usually all those items wouldn’t be on the floor for the doggies to investigate.

Enjoy!

Not sure that last email went through. Thank you so much for your delightful dialoge on your trip. Very informative and also amusing. Were you ever a travel agent? I'm so happy Julie got to share her trip with you. Debbie

share her trip with you
Thanks Debbie. Sorry I was not responsive while we were traveling back to the states. I had limited internet access. So happy I could travel with Julie. It was a trip of a life time. I am a mortgage banking friend of hers. Never a travel agent. Did I miss my calling?
