Christmas Vacation

So it's finally here! Christmas Vacation, and we are taking full advantage of the situation! We leave tomorrow morning to go to Chengdu, Tibet and Harbin. Pretty much we are covering the entire width of China. We will return to Shanghai on the afternoon of January 1, 2009.

A special thank you to my dear friend Valerie for the best Christmas present ever... another post will follow later about that with pictures.

If we have access to high-speed internet at our hotels, we are going to try to use Skype to contact friends and family. But there is a big emphasis on the 'if' at the beginning of that sentence.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!!

Love, Jim & Rachel

I haven't had a chance to check in with y'all in a while. Wanted to take a quick minute to wish you both a VERY Merry Christmas. Thinking about you and sending warm wishes your way! God Bless, Kathleen

We sent you guys a Christmas card to your Shiner address, though you would be spending holidays at home. Sorry you didn't get it. So how long are you there for?

Anyway, just wanted to wish you both happy holidays and have a great New Year!!

Drop by Facebook if you are ever there. I'm under Heidi Zimmerman Reid. Dave does not have a Facebook page. Ziggy does though and Omar too. Have fun out there!!! I love reading the blog!
