We're Here!

Livie and I arrived in China on Sunday afternoon. The flights from Ft. Lauderdale to Atlanta, and Atlanta to Shanghai on Delta were AWESOME! This was by far the best way to get to China (we have flown out of Newark and LA prior). Even the coach seats were comfortable and there was - SHOCK! - plenty of leg room.

Kim and Aimee picked us up from the airport, and their driver, Xiao He, drove us to the home of one of Kim and Richard's FCC friends, where a group of American expats (several with adopted children from China) were enjoying a good 'ol American Thanksgiving Dinner (Richard met us there with the other Choi kids, Hansen and Cady). Although Livie and I were extremely tired, we had a wonderful time. After dinner we headed to Kim and Richard's Taj Mahal...errrr...I mean home. There home is quite lovely (I will be sure to load photos is nothing like the tiny flats I have typically seen in China), and they have settled into life in China quite well.

We are leaving for the airport in less than an hour. We will be in Chongqing later today (it is a 3 hour flight) and I will hopefully have some photos to post at that time.

Livie and I are having fun on our adventure, but we are missing Neil, Lindsay, Chris and Sophie a bunch.

Huge hugs to all of you back home!
