Another key point about living here -- all the appliances have directions but they are in chinese....it has taken Molly 4 loads of laundry to figure out how to work it properly (trial and error) and we had a big problem that we could not get the dryer to work - it was taking 4 hours to dry things. It turns out that there is this "water catcher thing" (that is the best description we have for it) and since we were not emptying it -- the dryer basically was not working. It appears that we are back on track now that we are emptying this thing. It seems minor but these little things have caused us to go a little crazy at different times. However -- our american stuff we bought before coming over does work (thank goodness!).....
Overall we are doing pretty well. Molly has been to Singapore and Australia in the last 2 weeks. The weather in Singapore was amazing (it seems like a good place to go for hot weather)....Sydney was really cold and rainy since it is their fall...Molly will be heading to Europe in June on Business and then probably to India in early July.
Eric has been traveling within China to the plants and seeing customers. He is getting ready for a trip to India in early June.
The humidity is crazy. We have never experienced anything like it....It is hard to believe that next weekend is Memorial Day and we won't be at the lake....We are thinking of everyone and missing the US. Take care and we will keep you updated.
