Living here means we don't get too many visitors, so we were really excited to have Jason's aunt & uncle from Japan come visit us for the past few days before heading on to Xi'an to see the amazing Terracotta Warriors.
Yesterday, we wandered with them through Old Shanghai -- we had a surprise snow day that made everything seem prettier. (And, I was able to revive an old cameras for the day-yahoo)
Can you count the legs under this rain poncho?
Old town always has some of the most interesting things to see ... Doug & Sharon even brought their grandson's 'Flat Stanley' out for a photo.
Not sure what was on the road first, the car or the vegetable market?
Don't you always hang sausage out to dry with your laundry?
After old town, we made a quick trip to Qibao water village which was really beautiful in the snow (but very cold!).

How we got here ... with a couple babies!
We first met on July 7, 2006. We'd both quit our jobs and gotten rid of nearly all our possessions. We had joined the Peace Corps and were heading to the Kingdom of Tonga in the South Pacific. We thought we were prepared for whatever lay ahead ... neither of us had a clue.
Just over 10 months after we first met, we were MARRIED! Since then our adventures have included:
- a year in New York City, living in a Harlem brownstone apartment - going off-the-grid & into a tent-cabin on tiny Angaur island in Palau - living with a bunch of teenagers in Shanghai, China while working as dormitory parents
- off-the-grid again & into a barn on 400 forested acres in Vermont
- at the base of volcanos in beautiful Panajachel, Guatemala
And now ... on the hunt for a new career, we find ourselves in IDAHO!
We love to experience this great big world and hope you will join us for the journey!
