Early morning egg hunt, 4/25/15

We were out of eggs this morning, so I went out about 6:00 am (yep, I was awake) to see if anything was open. I went by the nearby wet market where I normally buy eggs, and it was gradually opening. Not all the vendors were open, but I did find eggs, apples, strawberries, green beans, and tomatoes. I’ll be able to make breakfast, and some soup later on. There was a lot of fresh produce being brought in as the market gradually opened.

After breakfast, Judy went to her haircut appointment and then made a Lili Nails visit. When she was coming out of Lili Nails, she ran into Shannon and Lara who had just finished a city-wide professional development seminar. They joined her for a drink in Costa Coffee.

I did a swim session, and then settled in to fight with the internet, searching through some travel sites. I’ve been corresponding with several travel consultants trying to put together a trip to Cambodia and Thailand during the two weeks between Judy’s school ending, and our flights to Barcelona. I’m trying to coordinate flights between Beijing, Siem Reap (Cambodia), Bangkok, and Koh Samui (Thailand). I’m trying to get the two consultants to drop their bids a little. We’ll see how that goes.

When Judy gets home, we make the walk over to Capita Mall to visit the Bank of China. We’re trying to figure out how to set-up a transfer from our bank in Beijing to our Chase Bank account after we leave Beijing. The school will deposit the money into the Chinese bank, and several people have told us we can set-up the transfer. We find out at the bank that it’s possible to make a one-time transfer, but we’ve got to pull together a lot of paperwork, including Judy’s contract (in Chinese), and several letters and tax statements. As we head home, we celebrate (I’m not sure what) with some frozen yogurt.
