Re: [pcchina] To China (R)PCV's
I don't know if anyone has answered you question yet.
So here goes. Peace Corps will provide you with a
water purifier, although most volunteers have water
delivered, at my school it's 5 yuan for a 27 Liter
container. As far as shoes, I've never shopped for
athletic shoes but you will have a problem with just
regular shoes... especially in Sichuan. I am 9 1/2
women's, and if I want shoes, I have to go to the
men's section. Hope that helps.
