Frustrations of travel
                     On a trip to the public gardens in Weihai, John and Brittany became horribly ill and had to grab taxis to our hotel.  Shelley had been ill several days with the flu but was finally better after a trip to the doctor.  Zane was ill too and had not come along.
                      Everyone’s better now which is a relief, because this evening we commence a 16 hour train ride to Beijing.  We’ll be in Beijing overnight and then take the plane home to America.

In pursuit of beauty
                 The women were have been experimenting with Chinese beauty treatments.  It was startling to come home and find them in face masks.  Shelley swears her skin is firmer.  I’m certain it makes no difference on Gabriela and Brittany—there skin is so good to begin with.

What does tomorrow mean? It is 5:30 pm here, but at home it’s 5:00 in the morning. I leave Weihai tomorrow and make a stop in Beijing. ...
