What a great idea that was!!!

Thursday night we were graciously invited for a Chinese food dinner at the beautiful home of one of the couples who we will be travelling with (along with the other Ottawa area couples from our travel group as well as Yulin and Bob). Well, what a fantastic idea it was! Manon, Richard, and Marie-Ève (along with Manon's parents Jacqueline and Pierre-Paul) were wonderful hosts, the food was exellent, and it's safe to say that a great time was had by all! I think that arranging the opportunity to meet and get to know some of the other families before we leave was genious. We all "showed-off" our pictures, shared stories...Manon, and Richard have been through it all before when they went to meet Marie-Ève, so I'm sure that they will be a great source of info for those of us who don't have a clue :-) Also, since four of the families will be on the same flights from Ottawa to Beijing, having the familiar faces as we begin our journey will no doubt help.

Less than two weeks to go!!!

Oh ya, I was going to talk about the plane tickets thing....oh well later....
