Why am I sitting in front of my computer?? Because I'm horribly over excited and can't face re-checking/packing everything again!! Dave similarly is playing on his (resurrected) Game Boy to try and quell the panic :)
We will of course have 4 hours of this once we get to the airport this afternoon and then another 9 hours of flight time. But, seeing as aeroplanes are designed to stand up to ridiculous pressures I'm sure they'll contain us :)
We are taking our mobiles but due to extortionate call charges abroad and an 8 hour time difference they will most likely be off except to check messages each evening.
We would both like to say HUGE thanks to everyone who has helped us get to this point and will come back with ridiculous stories, entertaining items and if we manage to get a vidicam a training montage >Fade up Eye of the Tiger<
Have a splendid August people, we will post when we can from Beijing!
