Last year I went to Israel (check my Israel posts here) with SmarTours and it was a fantastic trip. I have to say their customer service leaves a little to be desired but the trip went off without a hitch, so no complaints there. So this year I'm going with them to China. China! I never had a burning desire to go to China but I'm suddenly all about going to exotic places with cultures totally unlike my own. So, off I go. Tomorrow to San Francisco, Tuesday to China.
See Sophie Tucker with her back to me? She's pissed that I wouldn't let her in my suitcase. Maybe I should tell her they eat cats in China.
