I have to admit that I'm getting very excited about going to China- for the shopping. Now, I hate shopping. Hate it. Except for books. And there are English-language bookstores in Beijing. And toy stores. We need more K'nex.
And I might even be able find womens shoes larger than a size 8. They are non-existant in Bishkek (at least according to my shopping friends).
Of course I'm more excited about the other things we'll see. Aren't I?
