Hello, I am back in Shanghai. We got off the ship yesterday (Sunday in Singapore). It's been a blast, but I miss home. I have so much to share. Some I have forgotten. Hopefully, the photos will bring it back. Free Wi-Fi is a luxury. So I am blogging while I can. I should be in L A today. It's going to be strange because it will be 13 hours difference. I know what the sun rising in the East really means. We were in Singapore yesterday. I went to the site to ...

We are doing 10 days on land before we board Celebrity Millennium. It is quite an adventure so far. Pat

I purchased a pair of leather gloves. It took forever. We've been told to never pay the first price at these places. He started out with 290 yuan and we worked down to 100 yuan. That's about $20.00 U. S. Who knows if it is a bargain. The gloves are nice. We have 2 free days on ou...
