Ta-Daaaaah!

After literally years of rumors, it is finally coming true...Starbucks is coming to our city! I didn't believe it until I saw the actual construction site and the poster with the oh-so-familiar logo and the blessedly fluent English across the bottom. But it's true! It's really happening!
We give this news the thumbs up! There had even been something in the newspaper lately about FIVE new Starbucks in our city, but I put no stock in it, figuring that I'd believe it when I saw it. Well, I've seen it now, at least one of them. The location is great, right in the downtown area, which happens to be only about a 15 minute bike ride away from our apartment. The word on the street is that it will open some time next month. We hope they'll make a city mug, too. Woo-hoo! Fun times!

So excited for you! It has been lovely having one only 2 hours from us (or 30 min by fast train!).
I loved on the coming soon sign in Changsha it said "pradon our mess"... it was the thought that counts!

I am so glad that you can get through the long cold winter with some seriously good cups of coffee!!!

Hugs friend!

You beat me to the blog! Your pictures are better than my cell phone shot but at least my excitement is comparable to yours.
