Yesterday (today for you all) we went to hook up our mobile phones and DSL. Quite an adventure as it took almost 4 hours. The phone place was especially slow, but we ended up buying the cheapest phone they had with a pay as you go program. See above for how you'll be able to contact us. I'll try and set up the Skype account with a local number soon, but when I went to Skype's site, it was in Chinese. Didn't do me any good. The DSL is a 3 day process. Sign up first day, pay 2nd day, and they will hook up the 3rd day. Chinese efficiency.
Today we have another adventure of getting our picture taken and going to the hospital for some sort of physical. We've heard it is quite an experience. I'll post tomorrow and let you know how it went. Email me with questions if you have any. We have been talking to our parents via Skype a couple of times and filling them in. Once we get the DSL in our apartment, we'll be able to post/email back more.
The sky yesterday was extremely hazy/smoggy. Our view of the bay and mountains was not much of a view. I forgot to take a picture, but I'm sure it'll happen again. It rained last night for the first time, so I'm sure that settled some of the haze for today. It was as hot as usual though.
We'll, off to get ready for another day!
