Day two Touring Forgotten City, Tiannmen, Olympic Venue, Summer Palace....

I have such a mommie brain.,... soooo tired and dealing with the jumble of what was organized suit case. I thought I lost the point and shoot, found it. Yesterday before we left for the day, I made sure everything of "interest" was hidden in a zipped suit case or locked in the safe. As I was heading out, I see my gallon bag of meds with all prescription meds... including my life saving important DIOVAN HCT a three months worth in the labeled bottles .... in the bathroom with my overnight make up bag... at first I thought it was okay to leave in bathroom thinking the cleaning staff was so nice... hey they are Chinese... everything in China is wonderful. this is where my wonderful Tate is.... but for some reason I had second thoughts and hid the bag well into the recesses of my suit case. After a full day of touring, I am back in the room and getting ready for bed looking forward to another amazing day of touring. I look where I remember see the meds, they are gone! I searched everywhere... no bag of meds to be found. I am now concerned that the added stress of travel and meeting Tate would elevate my unmediated blood pressure. After a restless night of trying to figure out how I would handle these missing meds, I decided to delve deep into the bags. There it was in all it's safeness of unforgotten caution.... What a relief and a blood pressure deflation.
Tourist pictures of China...... soon it will be nothing but Tate and China.
FORGOTTEN CITY

I AM FASCINATED BY THE BEAUTY IN DETAIL
Me and Mom at the Birds Nest.... I am melting because of the heat!

I've been to China 5 times, left all sorts of thing in my room including cameras, lap top computers and iPods. I have never had anything stolen. I talked to my guide about it and he said that the jobs in the hotels are highly coveted. He said that no one wants to get fired and so they don't dare steal anything. This is another reason for the "greeter" that you see on each floor. They are held responsible for every person who works on that floor, and that means that they monitor very closely what goes on with the maids, etc. I wouldn't worry about anything that is in your bags. I would however keep your money on you or locked up! I'd also keep your passport under lock and key because its value is more than these folks will make in 5 lifetimes! ;o)

Glad to hear that the tours are going well! So much to see, so little time! Your making me miss China!!
