A note: Blogger is alive and well -- so far, so good -- in China. So much for busting those rumors. I am the only one who can view the comments, though. So go figure.

Isaac's been a great sport, having lost a day (or so, but who's counting) of sleep. After a day at the Great Wall and a tour of a local jade factory in Beijing, we were herded off to the airport where we discovered our flight was delayed by three hours. Honestly, the time whizzed by as it was perfect for people watching, chatting with new Chinese friends who are waiting as well. We got to the Hua Tian around 11 pm. and went for a walk down the street (pics to come later) to our neighborhood market for Tsingtao, snacks, water and to have a look at the baby formula. Last week I stared at the formula shelves at Target, Publix and Winn Dixie and let me tell you this was triple the confusion.

Off to pack the....diaper backpack.....We're leaving in an hour to meet the babies at the civil affairs office. Needless to say, I'll be back with some amazing pictures around lunchtime here.

I can't wait to hear all about it. We loved walking the streets around our hotel. We bought kettle corn and corn on the cob from some of the vendors. We bought nuts and dried fruit as well. We loved Food Street- and ate there a lot. The shrimp was great. Our daughter loved the oranges with cinnamon.
