It's Chinese New Year - Happy Year of the Snake

Yep.
It's Official.
China is closed for business.

It's time for Chinese New Year & Spring Festival Celebrations.
The UN-believable migration of folks within the country is 
s-t-a-g-g-e-r-i-n-g.
You can read all about it at the link below.

I did receive 2 emails from my agency today. One said, "China is closed until Feb. 18th."
The other said this:

Happy Friday! :)
As of February 4, 2013, your Article 5 has been delivered to the CCCWA. Once your Article 5 has been delivered, it's another several weeks for the CCCWA to approve and issue your Travel Approval. Travel Approvals are shipped from the CCCWA directly to our office. Once I receive your Travel Approval, I will contact you that same day!
So...we spend this evening at a Cultural School/CNY (Chinese New Year) dress rehearsal for a BIG shin-dig being held tomorrow, Saturday. Emily, and other little Asian darlings, will perform - The Peacock Dance. I'll just have to take pictures to share later.
We have to be sure and eat something green (prosperity) and eat noodles (l-o-n-g life). Sure hope there's something symbolic for chocolate. Hmpf!
