Because I can...
Its funny that I made this scrap-page, yesterday... the hottest day in Adelaide in 70 years. The mercury was boiling at 45.8C (114.4F)... it was HOT! Today we get a bit of relief, its only about 40C (104F) today!!! Its our 3rd (or is it 4th?) day in a row, over 40C.
Only 11 days to go. Its suddenly hit me, all the stuff I need to get done!!! Phone calls, bank trips, business tax stuff... the list is as long as my arm! I'm slowly getting there. Visited the bank today. The RMB exchange rate is almost half what it was when we were there last year. That totally sucks, for our donation. I paid for our "internal" travel/guide expenses today - that had to be in US$... and that exchange rate is crappy too.
Other news... the tiny laptop I bought just before Christmas... the one, "purpose-bought" especially for China.... has decided its not going to work. I can't believe it. The bloomin' thing is only 6 weeks old. I'm VERY ticked off. I'm taking it back to the store today -and demanding if its not fixed in a week - I'll be needing a new one.

There she is. My Sunshine on a cloudy day.
