I'm in Shanghai! I'm so excited to be here! I have a really good feeling about this year.

My first day here I found a grocery store - oh! the variety! Found some yummy street food - held out my hand full of change & the lady at the food stall counted out 5 RMB (about 70cents) very slowly so I could see what she was doing. Walked down a side street bustling with a night market.

I actually understood little bits & pieces of what people were saying, especially numbers & things like "how are you?" & "do you want some?"  I'm looking forward to improving my Mandarin skills while I'm here. Juliana will be so impressed!

That is great!! I'm glad you are excited to be there and are upbeat about the year. Do you have a chinese dictionary and your pimseluer tapes? Guess you don't need tapes at this point, haha! If you need a dictionary let me know... Glad you found a way to post on the blog. Estas muy lista!

I have a Chinese dictionary & my Pimsleur lessons with me. The school also offers Chinese lessons, so I should be able to learn a lot while I'm here :)
