Gotta love international travel!!!

Riddle of the day....

How fun is a 17-hour layover in LA?

Answer: Not fun. Not fun at all, especially when the airline does
not communicate well at all. At all.

But as my wise mother reminded me, in the midst of my great
frustration, that we are SAFE!!! And we are now sitting on the plane
and FINALLY getting ready to take off for Guanghzhou!!! Give PRAISE!!!

Now we will not arrive in Nanning until 11 am on Da Xin Day, after an
overnight stay in Guangzhou. On the bright side, we should be
showered and rested to meet our girl only moments after arrival.

Two side notes... Thanks Jen for setting me up to email Blogger my
posts. You rock!!! Let's see if I got this right.

Secondly, they took our temps getting ON the plane, in case you are
traveling soon.

Gotta go FLY!!!!
