Jean, EmmaGrace & I are all home safe and sound. Sorry for such a gap in "coverage", but the internet firewalls are alive and well in China! We had a great time at the wild animal park and were very impressed, must do if you are ever in the area. We also hired a shopping guide and found so many cool things for so much less than what we pay here in the U.S. Typically items were about 85% off what we pay for them here. Our trip back home was a 43 hour marathon of little to no sleep which consisted of: 1 private driver trip in a nice Audi A8 (van at hotel was late so they sent us 1st class), 1 high-speed rail trip from Guangzhou to Hong Kong, 3 metro rides to get to the airport, 5 hour flight to Korea, 5 hour layover, 14 hour flight to Dallas, 1 taxi ride to Love Field, 1 hour flight to San Antonio and finally a 1/2 hour drive with our friends to our home...success!! Thanks to the Galley's for taking care of our other children so gloriously.
All in all a most excellent adventure culminating in the best outcome of all, one new American and member of the O family!
Here are a few pictures from the trip, more later.
