Adventures and Accomplishments

Today we were out and about in China again. We went shopping in Wuai market and we went to the “Chinese Walmart”. The market is six buildings big, we only made it to the third floor of the first building. There is so much to look at, it’s overwhelming. Fashionista and I both bought some jewelry today and I’m sure we’ll be going back to explore the other five buildings.


To get to Carrefour, or the Chinese Walmart, we took a bus. (CFER here: To clarify, China does have the real “Walmart”. Carrefour is a French supermarket that is similar and has more import goods than the “real Walmart”.) This was our first bus ride in China. We got to Carrefour, but we didn’t know what we were getting ourselves into. It was like Black Friday shopping. A mad house. I don’t plan on making another trip there anytime soon.

Today was also a bit of an accomplishment. For those of you who know me very well, you know I have an extremely small bladder. Today, however, I managed to avoid all squatty potty usage, and held it until we got home. We were all proud of me.

Today was a fun filled, accomplished, adventure in Shen Yang!

  1. Welcome to China, girl.
    You will find shopping her to get just more and more crazy until Chinese New Year. So you are kind of correct about the Black Friday feel to it. If you want to go back,go early in the morning, as in be there for 8am or soon after.It will be muc eaier to see what they have.
    Enjoy you stay and study hard!

  2. From the years of frequent stops during family road trips, I know, all to well, what an accomplishment this was! Loving your blogs sweetheart.
