Just Another Day in Paradise - China Style

The things we see and experience in China never get old. 

Its so vastly different from anything in the US that is stays strange. From split pants on kids, to people pushing in front of us in line, to crazy construction and LOUD fireworks on a daily basis, life never gets boring. 

Here is just some of the things we saw and experienced today on our typical Monday 5K Club walk. 

The boards on this bridge have been rotting out for the last year...they are finally fixing them. 
Start of the bridge getting fixed...this is normally where we need to walk to avoid getting hit by a scooter. Needless to say, we are very thankful they are fixing it so we don't fall thru! 

The local hospital. Lately it has been PACKED on Mondays. There are people everywhere just standing around outside. We have yet to figure out exactly what is going on, but it makes me very thankful for our healthcare system in America! 

If you look close you can see part of the crowd outside the hospital. 

More of the crowd...and my thumb. 

I love my life here in Wuxi, but certain things make me very thankful for my life back in the states. I have to confess though, there are things that I really miss. Examples are: Target, a grocery store where I can buy everything I need at one place, a dishwasher, and a washer and dryer inside my house (and that works well). Being here has taught me to be thankful for the things I have and not to take them for granted. We are so blessed! 

I can tell you though, when we move home if you ever need to find me, just look at Target or 
Chick-fil-a...I can almost guarantee I will be there a lot for the first few months at home! Ha!

Ending our day by playing out in our backyard.
