Exceptionally good to hear how Anica is viewing the day to day events even if this is from a week ago. Her outlook is straight forward, easily grasped and clearly presented. I really enjoyed that! L to U all Poppa (aka JofA)

Wow Anica - what great descriptions! I can understand why you're sleeping so soundly in that photo - lots of adventures to tire you out at night. Sweet dreams, love Aunt Stevie. :)

Great writeup Anica! You've had a busy month! Lots of adventures and you've made some new friends. I hope China is every bit as interesting to you as the places you've already been.

Keep up the journal and tell us what you like and don't like about the rtwt.
