Travel Day #2: Arrival in Shanghai

Ni hao! We have arrived in Shanghai after a 14 hour flight. All was great until less than 2 hours into the flight, Cara-Li started to ask ''Are we there yet?'' I started to panic! What am I going to do with her for 12 more hours? Finally, she watched a couple of movies, listened to some music, ate and slept. We then took an cab for over an hour to downtown Shanghai. It is now 3:30 PM on Wednesday and we are sitting in the Westin Bund Center sipping some pijius (beer) while trying to decide where we are going to eat. It'll have to be quick as we are starting to fade. Tomorrow we are going to the Shanghai Zoo as Cara-Li wants to see some pandas.

Stay tuned....

Hooray, good to hear everyone survived that long trip. I told the kids you arrived. Now Niki thinks we too should go to China and get a new baby. Cody informed her that you must order a baby lol. Now Niki is insisting we go to China and order a baby. Have a great day at the zoo!

Debbie, Cody, and Niki

P.S. Niki is not letting up on this one.
