Rundown for the Week of February 19, 2000

Sounds of China
We're visiting the People's Republic of China. If you don't have a burning desire to go the world's most populous country, this may fire you up. If you've been itching to, the sounds we've brought back might make booking that tour irresistible.

China 101
A trip to China's likely to be a once in a lifetime adventure for most of us. So you want to make the most of it whether it's a luxury tour or back packing. To help figure out what's right for you, we go to Marty Goldensohn.

Returning to the Past
More than a few Westerners visit China to trace family histories to see where parents or grandparents lived as missionaries or as refugees.

The Story of Shanghai Jazz
Finally, on our visit to China, Marty Goldensohn sends us this postcard from Shanghai.

Next Week
You're going to love this...we're going behind the scenes at a fancy hotel to see what's expected of the cleaning staff....guess who they've got making the beds?

"I'm just going to check your pillows here to make sure that the creases inside look very nice. I see that you fluffed it. It looks very inviting, Rudy."

Nice to know I have some options if this public radio gig doesn't work. Follow me around as a hotel maid for a day. Then, a leisurely ride through the Panama Canal and weird stories of the odd jobs you've had on the road during next week's journey with The Savvy Traveler.

Cassette Copies
If you want your very own copy of The Savvy Traveler, order an audio cassette. It's easy. Just call 303-823-8000. The price is $15.
