So if your wondering why I used "Woohoo" as the title of this blog it's definitely because over the last couple of days we made a monumental purchase that will forever change our lives here in Luoyang. Yeah thats right, we bought a washing machine!! We have been here for 7 weeks and we have only done our laundry 2. That's gross :(. However all of that has changed because we are now the proud owners of a brand new whirlpool washing machine. :) Yes, it doesn't use hot water and we don't have a dryer (China doesn't believe in dryers) but it is far better than dragging our laundry across town to use our friends washing machine (thanks Tim&Melissa) only to drag it all the way back to our apartment. Did I mention we live on the fifth floor of the complex and there is now elevator. 3 weeks worth of wet laundry gets heavy real quick! And with that I shall introduce you to our new friend.
