Holy Cow! I'm going to be a mom in less than one hour. I wasn't nervous at all this morning but all of a sudden I am. I'm running around in circles trying to make sure everything is ready. I'm sure I have forgotten something but it is what it is. My stomach is a little tight but not to the extent where I feel that I'm going to throw up. When I stress, I tend to become the chicken with its head cut off.
The flight to Nanchang was good. It was a little bumpy. They served us breakfast on the airplane that wasn't half bad (scrambled eggs with peas and carrots, hash brown, fruit cocktail, a hotdog, and a croissant). Our guide took us to the grocery store across the street from our hotel and I was reminded of some of the grocery stores in Laredo. The prices were dirt cheap. I had to try their version of oreos and I got texas grilled bbq lays potato chips because I've been craving salt (which isn't great since my ankles really swoll up on the flight and is finally going down). I'm still perky. Mom's back and hip are bothering her but she keeps on trucking. She's stubborn just like me.
Nanchang itself is pretty cool city (not temperature wise). There are so many people on bicycles and scooters and it seems that there is no rhyme or reason to the traffic flow...people just go it seems whenever they want but there are no accidents. The people are friendly. This girl was trying to tell me to put my basket down (I'm so used to lugging it in line that I'm used to it) because it was very heavy. She was trying to show me to put it down but I didn't get it and I accidentally I squished her finger with the basket handles. I felt badly. Communication is harder here in Nanchang. Not as many people speak English. You have to communicate with hand gestures. But I have to say, I already like the vibe of Nanchang.
