We're Back!

We've been back since Saturday night but let's just that jetlag has got the best of all of us! We don't know when to eat or sleep. The girls sleep whenever they're tired eventhough it might be daytime. We, the adults, are not sleeping at all. Food... we haven't really seen much of that either! Can't wait for this to be over. It is actually painful!

On our last day in Beijing, we went shopping just around the corner of the hotel. There is a wonderful street that the locals call the Champs Elysée of Beijing. And just down an alley from there, there is a little market that sells all sorts of Chinese merchandise. In this market, there is a food court and here they serve all sorts of stuff... I believe I mentionned this to you in an earlier post. This time I had a camera. Here are some photos. Yummy!
After this last bit of Beijing, it was time for us to check out and head off to the airport. All went well and just a short time later (13 hours to be exact!), we landed in Canada. Alexia became a landed immigrant in Toronto and then we were off to Montreal where we were greeted by family and friends. We were glad to be home!
Much of Sunday was spent in a daze. We did manage to get to our neighborhood park where they were having Harvest Day. We saw some of our neighbors and Cara-Li got to see her little friend, Ella, whom she missed so much!
Today was Cara-Li's first day at Kindergarten. It meant so much to her to be dropped off by her baby sister as she wanted everyone to see her. Too cute!
