Hi Ann,

It was really fun to read your Pack List, since we just did this one year ago. (Yes, one year ago Suz and I were in China and already had Shania!) Suz's Agency gave us a list of "Suggested things to take" and Suz tried to take ALL of them. Consequently we had hundreds of things along that we didn't need. Your list is much more sensible.
