Hello All,
So I have started to feel a little better after having had a few days break. A few days ago Becca and I went out in "downtown Pudong" as I like to call it (the area with all of the huge sky scrapers and such) to pick up my moon cakes that a student had given me a gift certificate for. While I haven't really developed a taste for moon cakes yet I am still not going to pass up free ones so off we went to the Jin Mao tower and some hotel in it to pick them up. I must say that the Jin Mao tower has now become my favorite building in Shanghai because of how beautiful it is. We didnt get to go up in it but I would really like to some day soon. We then went and had a Haagen dazs mooncake which was AMAZING!! I actually got the last one they had at the store (lucky me!!). Overall it was a delightful evening and well worth the trip.
More to Come
Lots of love

Lucky You!
Well, V. C., it looks as though you're becoming a devotee of your new environs. Had I been you, I would have bought the moon pie and also asked for a R. C. Cola. (That's what the country people usedto order as their haute cuisine! China is one country I have always wanted to visit, but I guess it's too late now. Probably a good thing because they are rapidly becoming our owners. If we don't get that socialist out of office and clear out the entire Congress, then the Chinese parents will be saying to their children: "Eat everything on your plate. Think of the starving American children" That's what our parents used to say to us except just reverse the countries. You have a great time over there. We prayed for you last Sunday, then your beloved old Dad aslo said: "pray for Shanghai" Wouldn't you just know it. He hot a big laugh as usual. That was in the Knott Sunday School Class. Take care, and I look forward to hear more about your escapades. Love, Bunny
