Hong Kong ... Sheesh!
















What a LONG plane ride! I don't even want to think about the return trip with a little baby girl who has never been on a plane before and doesn't even know her parents that well...it's gonna be something to say the least!
This is Mark again, btw. I'll be your China host while we're here, so you'll have none of Lisa's snappy comments and informative adoption facts...just me babbling about this and that!
Hong Kong is a sight to see. So many structures that act as apartments, often 50 stories high and one family for one room...that's how they can have such a high population in such a small area. It is very American friendly, with American writing below every Chinese word on signs, street posts, & billboards.
We just want to let everyone know we're here, we're safe, & we're TIRED! Gonna take showers and relax the rest of the evening. I've attached some pictures but I won't know if they get published until we see the site from another location. In the meantime, everyone be safe and miss us!
Karen - Forgot to tell you that Daisy likes to climb in the dryer if the door is left open. So don't fluff & tumble our little baby!!
Love,
Mark & Lisa
