Can you leave China with Chinese currency?
Do you have to save all of your receipts for goods purchased?
(I guess for customs?)
Pay toilets (in China) on street cost 20-30 yuan?
Can you haggle in department stores in China?
Is it true that Air pollution is winter in cities is severe, many Chinese wear surgical masks?
Is it true that if I want to mail a package to US, I need to leave package open to be inspected at postoffice?
Just a couple of things I'm curious about. Anyone know the answers? :)

Interesting comment on the view today. They were speaking about how a celebrity wanted to go to Rowanda and the topic of adoption came up. Whoopi said that at first everyone (african americans) were all up in arms because the white people were adopting Chinese babies and they were like why don't they adopt black babies. Now they (caucasions) are in Africa adopting the black babies and everyone is still up in arms.
I could just image Whoopi rolling her eyes. I agree with her point of view. People are just never happy. What does it matter. A child is a child. Let just be grateful for everyone that DOES find a forever family! Geesh.

I'm not sure if I'm definately bringing a voice recorder but it fit nicely in the side pocket so it staying for now. I found these 4x6 clear zipper pouches at WalMart for $1.97 and decided to make little kits. Whatever the "kit" was, I had to find items that would fit into it instead of finding a container to fit them. It force me to scale down...both in size and volume. I will have to refill my backpack on a daily basis and will pack that stuff in the checked bag.
Yes, I know...but I HAVE to have my makeup. I still have to add mascara, eyeliner & shadow, and lipstick. ALL makeup that I will be bringing will be in this little 4x6 pouch. Same goes for my mini office kit.
Still will be adding some meds to this med kit. Of course I needed some little hair accessories. Oh, and you gotta have one of those plastic diapers.
Baby Meds...more to come. Waiting til referral to purchase these due to expiration dates. Clothing includes one sleeper, dress, hat, socks and onsies.
The feeding kit is kinda big and empty. Waiting til referral. Thermos & baby blanket are not shown. Last but not least is the misc pouch.
