The biggie on my list was to complete the process to get my China driver's license. You'd think the test, my last step, would be easy because we were given a test booklet with all the questions in it. But that booklet had 1500 questions (327 pages) and it covered an huge range of topics from China's internal DMV admin reqiurements, EMT rescue techniques, penalties for every traffic violation possible, hundreds of specifics related to buses, tractors, trailers, non-motorized vehicles, and heavy machinery, to driving etiquette for when you encounter a herd of animals on the road or rescue methods for when your car is submersed in water (stay in the car and call for help?), to road signs and hand signals that Matt had to encourage me to believe must be intuitive for somebody somewhere. Dozens of questions contradicted each other (they probably didn't in Chinese, but I was reading English questions which- on the whole- I am SO grateful I could do!) It was killer. But today, by the wild grace of God, I passed the test, first try!
What a relief! Tonight we're celebrating with a little silly time off together.... it's like an evening vacation. (Yea for some blog post fun!)
I can drive in China now!!! Yipee!!!
Thank you Lord!
